About

Louise Farrenc (1804‐1875) was one of the first successful female composers in 19th century France. Born into a family of high artistic activity, she became an accomplished pianist (having had lessons with Moscheles and Hummel), eventually holding a professorship at the Paris Conservatoire.

Her two piano quintets (with double bass) are firmly rooted in the classical tradition of Schubert, Schumann and Mendelssohn. They are delightful, brilliantly scored works, full of instrumental virtuosity and melodic invention.

They are played here with enthusiasm and good humour by the Quintetto Bottesini.

Booklet contains excellent liner notes and artist biographies.

Quintetto Bottesini:
- Alessandro Cervo: violin
- Federico Stassi: viola
- Amedeo Cicchese: cello
- Linda Di Carlo: piano
- Roberto Della Vecchia: double bass
