Repertoire List

Muses Trio advocate for and support other women. By including our repertoire list to date, alphabetised by the composer’s surname, we hope you might support women composers in the following ways: Request a piece you’ve enjoyed for radio broadcast, gift a score to a musician friend, nudge a local ensemble to program more music by women, or perform one of these wonderful pieces yourself. Each listing is linked directly to the website to purchase or download the score, or if not yet publicly available, to contact the composer directly.
