Description: Many of us met this Frenchwoman composer through her symphonies but, as a composer of piano music, Farrenc produced an important collection of 30 etudes written in all major and minor keys. The present recording offers 13 of these etudes as well as three sets of variations, two of the operatic variety. Joanne Polk (piano).
