Louise Farrenc: Music For Violin and Piano

Composer: Louise Farrenc Artists: Daniele Orlando (violin) & Linda di Carlo (piano)

This new recording contains the two violin sonatas and the Variations Concertantes sur une Mélodie Suisse, of which Robert Schumann wrote: ‘So sure in outline, so logical in development … that one must fall under their charm, especially since a subtle aroma of romanticism hovers over them.’
