Paralleling Beethoven's Triple concerto in C Major for piano, violin and cello, Insula orchestra pays tribute to the French composer Louise Farrenc, a talented artist whose unjustly neglected work was nonetheless acclaimed by her contemporaries, musicians and critics alike: La Belgique musicale wrote "A woman may indeed successfully walk the rocky path laid down by Haydn, Mozart or Beethoven". This performance of her third symphony is an opportunity to rediscover an important work of the Romantic period.
