Farrenc: Piano Trios, Sextet / Linos Ensemble

Notes & Reviews:

"If any woman deserves to be recognized as the greatest female composer of the 19th century, it's Louise Farrencduring the period in which she was active as a composer - roughly the mid-1820s through the late 1850s - few composers of any gender persuasion, save for Felix Mendelssohn - could hold a candle to her when it came to writing symphonies and large chamber-ensemble works...What you will notice immediately in Farrenc's music...besides its exquisite craftsmanship and adherence to Classical form, is one of the most innate gifts for melody and harmony of any composer of this period...If ever there was a composer whose praises I've wanted to shout from the mountaintop, Louse Farrenc is it. This is sure to be on my Want List in the same volume. And it should be on yours as well. But please don't stop there. Get her symphonies too. You won't regret it." - Fanfare
