Connie Sheu just recorded a CD of music by all women composers entitled, "The Woman's Voice".

Additionally, I have a book of music by Theresa deRogatis (I think published by Berben). Some very high quality material in there. Not easy though!

Check out sheerpluck.de and search the grand database that's there. You can search gender, birthyear/death and lots of other stuff! 2 women composers I can think of are Hilda Paredes and Barbara Kolb, last one has a nice violin/guitar piece!
Kevin Aram "Torres", 2009
Stephan Schlemper "Transparence", 2015

Here is a list of modern Spanish women who have composed for the guitar.

and there are more of her recordings/music at YouTube. She is known also of her guitar handbooks and she plays important role in classical guitar base education in Poland. Her simple piece "Little Romance" is so easy and beautifull, too.

Every day I discover something new and fun on this site! I can't believe it! I am participating in both the English and French sites. I love this thread, because I am interested in women composers and why it was so difficult for them to publish their work. I know there are many more male than female composers for guitar, partly because composing, like other creative enterprises was considered a "male" domain. I think a lot of women composers published under the names of husbands, brothers, etc. Also because, from what I understand the guitar was, until recently, considered a "male" instrument. Is this true?

I remember my mom telling me the story many times about how she was allowed to study trombone in high school because her band director was gay. Although she was primarily a pianist, she took trombone very seriously and wanted to continue into college, but was told there that women were allowed to play flute, piccolo, harp and piano only. She was not even allowed to audition-- either for performance or for classes. THere were no other "female" instruments besides this short list. Does anyone know if this is true?

I know that large hands are an advantage on the fingerboard, but obviously there are a lot of really first rate female classical guitarists out there right now. I am pretty old, but when I was young there was nobody-- only Liona Boyd, who was never my favorite for complex and possibly unfair reasons.
