Nonetto Op 38 (Score & Parts)-WW5/VN/VA/VC/KB
Publisher: International Opus
Edited by William Scribner.
Similar in structure and style to the Beethoven Septet and the Schubert Octet, this twenty-five minute work in E-Flat Major is in four movements featuring prominent solo lines and variations or all of the instrumentalists. The premiere of the Nonetto in November, 1850, featured 19-year old legendary violinist Josef Joachim, and catapulted Farrenc to near-celebrity status as a composer- se much so that she subsequently requested that the Paris Conservatoire put her salary in line with male professors, a request which was immediately granted.
