The Hidden Mothers Project is an initiative by The Rhythm Method to bring the music of historical women composers into the public consciousness. This inaugural Hidden Mothers performance will present little-known works by Florence Price, Amanda Maier-Röntgen, Amy Beach, and Elizabeth Maconchy, as well as a premiere performance of The Rhythm Method’s “Suffragette Songs,” which reset song texts from the early 20th century women’s movement.
With “stunning displays of fearsome extended technique and fearless programming” (New York Music Daily) and “uncompromising and unreserved . . . intense, and sensuously gestural” performances (examiner.com), The Rhythm Method strives to reimagine the string quartet in a contemporary, feminist context. The four performer-composers of The Rhythm Method continually expand their sonic and expressive palette through the use of graphic notation, vocalization, improvisation, and performance. They are slated to release its debut album, featuring new works by Leah Asher and Marina Kifferstein, on SCRIPTS Records in 2019.
