Archive magazine “VivaVoce”

Cover VivaVoce Nr. 100 © Archiv Frau und Musik

Originally called Info, before it was renamed VivaVoce in 1993,  this journal was published by Archiv Frau und Musik until the end of 2015. It was the only German-language professional body of publishing on the subject of women and music, in the field of serious music. It published interviews with women composers and conductors, articles on historical and contemporary women composers, and reviews of concerts, books, and CDs. In addition, VivaVoce provided a forum for all those who actively participated in public musical life. As part of the 2018 digitization project of our holdings for the Digital German Women’s Archive, all issues of VivaVoce were digitized. The previous issues and their contents can be researched via the META catalog.


One could subscribe to the VivaVoce at a price of 26 € (33 € abroad) per year. However, due to the archive’s unfortunately difficult financial situation, we were forced to pause the VivaVoce from issue 100 on. Reorders of the not-out-of-print back issues which aren’t out of print are possible at any time. Prices on request. If an online edition can be implemented in the future, you will find the issues starting with No. 101 here. If you are interested in our anniversary issue No. 100, just send us an e-mail with your postal address to info[at] and transfer 9 € (special edition) to
