Skipton Camerata: Farrenc Symphony No.3
After a century and a half of neglect, Louise Farrenc’s Third Symphony is now widely recognised as a masterpiece. Despite being held in high regard by many of her contemporaries, Farrenc was doubtless the greatest overlooked composer of her day. Hers is an ardently romantic and strikingly original voice, and her Symphony No 3 dating from 1847 is as vibrant and inventive as any symphony by Schumann or Mendelssohn.
Ben Crick gives Farrenc’s symphonic masterpiece pride of place in a programme that includes three very different pieces from the 18th Century written within fifteen years of each other, and the first performance of Uprising by Florence Anna Maunders.
Mozart Serenata Notturna
Dittersdorf Double Bass Concerto No.2
Haydn Symphony No.48 ‘Maria Theresia’
Maunders Uprising (first performance)
Farrenc Symphony No.3
Richard Waldock double bass
