Louise Farrenc (1804-1875) was a distinguished and powerful professor and piano teacher at the prestigious Paris Conservatoire, standing out because she was a woman in a world controlled by men. Her etudes were heralded by critics of her day and are still worthy of study. This edition of Farrenc's Etudes Op. 42 and 25 Progressive Etudes Op. 50 offers us today an opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with the work of this remarkable musician and provides a new body of music that is not only useful for technical development but also offers fascinating insight into the spirit of the nineteenth-century teaching studio. These etudes are charming, intermediate-level works which show the influences of Cramer, Hummel, Beethoven and Bach, and are representative of styles of the day. Each musical gem works on one particular problem. The integrity and character of each work has been retained as carefully as possible in this edition, and editorial suggestions are clearly indicated as such.
