They have waited long enough

Composers Annelies Van Parys, Aftab Darvishi and Calliope Tsoupaki create new, contemporary sounds for three women who have had to wait in the wings of the great Greek myths far too long. Author Gaea Schoeters found the words that do these women justice: moving yet liberating. Soprano Katharine Dain sings them to life. Three colourful soloists on clarinet, duduk and qanun join the Ragazze Quartet. British stand-up classicist  Natalie Haynes provides an introduction .
