INTERNATIONAL Women's Day will be celebrated in Dunfermline this weekend with a concert showcasing females composers.

The Resol String Quartet will visit the city on Sunday as part of their UK-wide Female Composers Tour.

The musicians met at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2018 and come from a variety of backgrounds but were brought together by their shared vision to make classical music more inclusive and accessible.

Music on the bill will include Fanny Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in E-flat major which is thought to be the first string quartet written by a female composer.

Playing it for the first time recently sparked the quartet’s interest in what other female musicians may have composed, and this in turn led to them putting together an all-female programme.

Music composed by viola virtuoso and composer Rebecca Clarke, Dutch pianist Henriette Bosmans and Florence Price, who is noted as the first African-American woman to be recognised as a symphonic composer, will also be performed.

The concert will take place at 7.30pm on Sunday, March 19, at Viewfield Baptist Church.

Tickers are £14 and £2 for concessions and are available on the door or at
