Scordatura Women’s Music Collective is a mixed chamber ensemble dedicated to performing music written by women. Our repertoire reaches back to the 16th century, and also encompasses contemporary and world music. We are committed to promoting music written by women which has been unfairly neglected; to support and perform current composers; and to inspire the next generation of women to compose.
SCORDATURA : “A term applied largely to lutes, guitars, viols and the violin family to designate a tuning other than the normal, established one… It offered novel colours, timbres and sonorities, alternative harmonic possibilities and, in some cases, extension of an instrument’s range.” Grove Music Online
