Louise Farrenc

Parisian-born Jeanne-Louise Dumont showed an obvious musical gift at an early age and received excellent training in both piano and composition. She married Aristide Farrenc, a flautist and music publisher, in 1821 and enjoyed a long and distinguished career as a pianist, composer, and pedagogue. Her compositions include works for solo piano, numerous chamber works, three symphonies and three overtures, most of which were published by her husband.
