And the platform has many female composers from Anglo-Saxon countries, "much more advanced in this field", specifies Ms. Bodin.

- Enriching and not rewriting -

A long term research work which began in 2006 and which is not launched "because it is a trendy subject".

"It is not a question of rewriting history but of enriching the repertoire", explains Ms. Bodin. "We must not simply program them because they are women and to give ourselves a clear conscience, but because there is a real artistic interest".

For this harpsichordist who has put aside her career to devote herself to these projects, the non-programming of the composers remains a major obstacle to the dissemination of their works.

For the past ten years or so, she has regularly given lectures on the subject and rare among the public are those who can give names beyond the "top 5" composers, such as Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, Lili Boulanger or the contemporaries Betsy Jolas and Kaija Saariaho.

"For concert halls, there is the constraint of filling" which generally rests on the big names like Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Brahms or Bach.

"We only see the top of the iceberg, because even among men there are a lot of composers who deserve to be highlighted", recalls Ms. Bodin.

"Everyone has to start programming female composers because the guest artists, if they are not sure that other venues are doing it, will hesitate to play these scores".

Scheduled for March, the “Présences feminines” festival has been postponed to October (from 12 to 20). Since its creation, seven works by composers have been commissioned, including one by the young Camille Pépin (29), who this year became the first composer to receive a prize at the "Victoires de la musique classique".

For its 2021 edition, the festival has launched a call for projects to create a musical tale for young people. Cécile Buchet won out over 15 female composers.

For Ms. Bodin, the promotion of female composers must also be carried out at the level of conservatories.

Interviewed by AFP in 2019, Camille Pépin had indicated that she was the only girl in composition lessons at the Paris Conservatory. "But today the teachers I meet and the young musicians want things to happen; there are assumptions that are tough but are starting to fall apart".
