Louise Farrenc’s talent was discovered first by Hector Berlioz. She studied piano with Johann Nepomuk Hummel and Ignaz Moscheles. As a student in classical composition she knew all of Beethoven, Mozart and Haydn’s works, and in their spirit Louise Farrenc composed in a ‘universal’ and ‘European’ language of music.
