Louise Farrenc was born in 1804 into an artistic family of painters and sculptors, living in a “commune” near the Sorbonne in her native Paris. At an early age she was admitted to the Paris Conservatoire, where she studied composition and piano, and where she met her future husband, the flautist Aristide Farrenc.

Farrenc’ s early compositions were in cultivated Salon style, her later works however are of a more ambitious nature, she composed large scale chamber music and even symphonies.

The clarinet and flute trios and the wind sextet on this new recording are written in the Classical/Early Romantic style of Weber, Hummel and Clementi, music of fresh imagination, charm and scintillating instrumental virtuosity.

Played with brio and zest by I Solisti del Teatro Dell’Opera di Roma, an elite group led by pianist Linda di Carlo, who already successfully recorded an earlier Farrenc CD (BC94815).
