Works with Horn by Women Composers Catalog

Founded in 2002, this catalog has been an essential resource for performers, composers, teachers, scholars, and others who are interested in programming or studying works with horn by women composers. The catalog includes solo and chamber music with horn (original works, up to 12 instruments) by women composers from around the world. Almost 2,000 pieces are listed and the catalog is continuing to be updated. I welcome your additions, corrections, and questions. Please contact me using this link.

About half of this list was originally collected from these
sources. I am especially indebted to Monique Buzzarté and Heidi Boenke for their compilations. More recently, I want to thank Rob Deemer, Ashley Killam, and everyone else who is working on the Composer Diversity Database. Finally, Michael Allen from Boulder Brass offered significant contributions to the brass quintet page in 2020.

The publication of this edition was made possible by kind permission of the family of the composer and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

***NEW: In order to be more inclusive, I have changed the name of this catalog to
Women Composers instead of Female Composers. This catalog includes any composer who identifies as a woman.
