Description: First recording of the op. 33 piano trio which comes right after Farrenc's Symphony No. 1 (1841). A 31-minute work in four movements, its virtuosic piano part demonstrates the composer's keyboard capabilities while the work as a whole is in the same dynamic, energetic and powerful style as the symphony. The other two works have been recorded before: the piano-concerto-like sextet of 1852 and the clarinet trio of 1856 (quieter and more lyrical than her youthful compositions). Linos Ensemble. Konstanze Eickhorst (piano).
