About

French composer Louise Farrenc (1804 – 1875) wrote a litany of memorable works that nonetheless lay forgotten for quite some time—not only was she a woman working in a male-dominated profession, she was also a French composer writing symphonies at a time when the genre was disdained in her native country, then dominated by opera. When renowned conductor Laurence Equilbey and her impeccable Insula Orchestra bring Farrenc’s Third Symphony in G Minor out of the archives, it sounds like a work whose place in the canon is long overdue, with a “clear identity [and] unique compositional voice that makes the work interesting and worth hearing” (Bachtrack).

Beethoven’s Triple Concerto—the only concerto Beethoven ever composed for more than one solo instrument—begins the program. Violinist Alexandra Conunova, cellist Natalie Clein, and pianist David Kadouch perform the beloved work with great command and thrilling brio, creating a perfectly charged atmosphere in which to discover Farrenc’s symphony.
