The BBC Concert Orchestra and BBC Radio 3 bring back into the spotlight five forgotten female composers on International Women's Day.

The composers – Leokadiya Kashperova (1872–1940), Marianna Martines (1744–1813), Florence B Price (1887–1953), Augusta Holmès (1847–1903) and Johanna Müller-Hermann (1868–1941) – were chosen after being championed by academics studying their work. They will be performed live on BBC Radio 3, presented by Fiona Talkington and conducted by Jane Glover.
