Unjustly neglected? Judge for yourself as unsung talents like Elisabeth Luytens, Grażyna Bacewicz, and Ursula Mamlok get a shot beside their not-quite-forgotten sisters Ethyl Smyth and Betsy Jolas, the dimly remembered Thea Musgrave and Ruth Crawford-Seeger, and the certified crackpot genius Sofia Gubaidulina, still with us in her high 80s.
