Introduction

A female composer like Louise Farrenc was an oddity in early 19th century France. Compositions for salons and playing music at home were still acceptable, but public concert life was reserved for men. Symphonies composed by women were a contradictory phenomenon for contemporaries, and it was extremely difficult for women to get their large-scale works performed. Louise Farrenc’s third symphony is big, handsome and ambitious.

Johannes Brahms brewed his first symphony carefully and did not begin his symphonic career until he was over 40 years old. The composer’s two serenades give an imaginative taste of what kind of symphonies Brahms might have composed in his twenties. His Serenade No. 2 brings out the orchestra’s low string instruments, woodwinds and horns.
