The Ensemble Gli Accenti offers a journey to discover the feminine soul, through the interpretation of works composed by women in the 17th century.


The concert will take place at the Music Room of the National Palace of Queluz and will focus on composers Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, Isabella Leonarda and Barbara Strozzi - names little known to the general public, that are starting to gain more and more notoriety.
