Leah Broad: Singing Women’s Praises

Classical music has long been a male-dominated affair. Historical musicologist Leah Broad is determined to redress the balance and in Quartet: How Four Women Changed the Musical World she chronicles the lives and work of 20th century composers, Ethel Smyth, Rebecca Clarke, Dorothy Howell, and Doreen Carwithen. Today at the Book Festival, Broad shares her project and her illuminating book.
