Since no one else has posted, here is a link to an interesting article on Farrenc as a composer. Some of her pieces are for piano.

Remember, if you are not a subscriber to the NY Times, I believe you are limited to reading 5 articles a month for free.

We had a trio by her played just a couple of weeks ago at our music club. We were impressed by the quality of the writing.

She came into view because all the other female composers have been (re-)visited. I've heard many of her compositions, alas none of them stuck out to be either memorable, or original, even contempary to her times, I think she is a rather boring.

I disagree, I don’t find her compositions boring at all. I really like what I’ve heard from her.

her music is really old fashioned by the standards of her time, technically Czerny-like and musically, well, also. May be in her other than piano works it works but in her piano works it doesn't work.
