  Clarke, Rebecca (1886-1979)

Born in Harrow, England, she attended the Royal College of Music; the first female to study composition. Her Violin Concerto gained her joint first in a competition. Her works include songs and chamber music. Technically her works use non-functional harmony, with added sixth and sevenths. Rhythmic ingenuity can be heard in her viola and cello works. Many view her style as a fusion of Impressionism, English folk tunes and solid chords.
