Program

FARRENC: Nonet in E-flat Major, Op. 38

MENDELSSOHN: Octet in E-Flat Major, Op. 20

 

The muse bestowed many kisses on Mendelssohn in his short life, but surely none sparked so brightly as the one that spurred the sixteen-year-old prodigy toward his effervescent Octet for Strings. For the pianist and composer Louise Farrenc, one inspired work of chamber music for winds and strings vaulted her, against all odds, to the top of French society.
