Trinity Laban Symphony Orchestra Side by Side
Conductor Jonathan Tilbrook / Jonathan Mann
Farrenc Symphony No.3
Trinity Laban’s Side by Side series brings together student talent with professional mentors from leading orchestras, sharing their expertise and skills.
A 19th-century woman who successfully campaigned for equal pay, Louise Farrenc (1804 – 1875) is an inspiring figure. A virtuosic pianist and respected teacher, she was Professor of Piano at the Paris Conservatoire for almost three decades, and as a composer she contributed three remarkable symphonies to the canon of French instrumental music, including Symphony No. 3 (1847).
Described as “a uniquely expressive and significant voice that needs to be recognised and heard” (The Guardian), this is fantastic opportunity to hear this impressively energetic, and too often neglected, work.
