Maria Hester Park, née Reynolds (1760–1813) was an accomplished composer, performer, and teacher. Her surviving music, written over a period of a quarter of a century, is diverse and personal, and is that of a highly competent and professional musician. It includes solo keyboard sonatas, sonatas with violin accompaniment, short vocal works (glees), a keyboard concerto, a waltz, and a divertimento for piano and violin. The keyboard sonatas opp 1 and 2 were published under her maiden name Reynolds, while the rest of her works were issued after marriage.
Despite recent discoveries, mainly of biographical information, many details about Park's professional life remain unknown. We know little of her musical milieu, the reception of her compositions and which of her applied genres were most popular. This chapter addresses Park's subscription lists, to discover more about her professional environment and attest to her status within London's musical circles.
