Miriam Gideon, composerMiriam Gideon, composerOn February 23, 2010, the Abby Whiteside Foundation presents a recital of piano music by Vivian Fine, Miriam Gideon, and Louise Talma, at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. All three composers were friends and associates of Foundation President Sophia Rosoff. Fine, Gideon, and Talma were frequently played during their long lifetimes. Few other American women composers garnered as many awards or made as many recordings. Yet in the 21st century their music is seldom heard except by specialists. It's a shame, for their art is full of high craft and vivid invention.
