Female composers and performers top this season's programme at the Malaga Philharmonic Society.

They feature in nine of 14 recitals at the Unicaja María Cristina concert room to make up for their absence during so many years.

Still to come: Judith Jáuregui is dedicating her recital to Clara Schumann and her relationship with husband Robert and their intimate friend Johannes Brahms (13 November).

Clara Schumann will also be performed by pianist Sofía Melikyan, with works by Kaija Saariajo and Geghuni Chitchyan (24 February). Saxophonist Elisa Urrestarazu and a string quartet will premiere a work by Reyes Oteo and a composition by Fanny Mendelshonn (13 March).

Soprano Laia Falcón will sing texts by writers such as Emily Dickinson (24 March). Oboist Nieves Carmona (28 April), violinist Hewich Helders (4 May) and viola player Isabel Villanueva (26 May) bring the series to a close.
