  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Conductor Debora Waldman brings a ‘Forgotten Symphony’ into the light” – below is their description.

    She was the first woman to be named artistic director of a French national orchestra in Avignon-Provence; now Debora Waldman has lifted the veil on a female composer who was pushed to the margins of musical history. She joins us in the studio to talk tell us more about Charlotte Sohy, a composer who never saw her 1917 symphony performed during her lifetime. Waldman managed to right that historical wrong, conducting a performance of that symphony in Besançon in 2019.
