Episode 4

For many centuries, women composers and performers were kept from public view. Tradition deemed it only proper that females confine themselves to the domestic arts and leave the concert hall to the men. Considered a novelty, women's music might be heard at best in drawing rooms and recital parlours.

In today's Afternoon on 3, Katie Derham showcases the talents of Enniskerry-born Ina Boyle, in the premiere recording of her rediscovered Violin Concerto, written in 1935: together with some of the finest Ulster Orchestra performances from the last year.
