Being Robert Schumann: Cello Concerto

21 January 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


The music of the 19th century French composer Louise Farrenc was much admired by Robert Schumann – but while Schumann gained lasting celebrity, Farrenc’s works were unjustly neglected. She was a virtuoso concert pianist (like Clara Schumann), but as a woman, was denied composition classes at the Paris Conservatoire. The influences and echoes between the duo are highlighted by Maestra Léonard in a program that pairs Farrenc’s Symphony No. 3 with Schumann’s Cello Concerto – given dazzling life by prize-winning young cellist Stéphane Tétreault – as well as two contemporary compositions.
