Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
César Franck's sonata was dedicated to the Belgian vioinist virtuoso Ysaÿe, who bequeathed us a handful of wonderful old recordings from the early 1900s. The sonata is innovative in its recurring themes across the movements, and has an intimate quality never really captured by the recordings I have heard from Russian violinists. Kyung Wha Chung and Radu Lupu are sublimely gifted and underrated musicians, who capture the essence with astonishing beauty and some passion, playing in perfect partnership. Both are oustanding virtuosi who deny that epithet, preferring to be more modestly remembered for the musicianly qualities of their music making. Well, that's OK with me, but I just wish their refreshingly uncynical talents were more widely appreciated.

They play the Debussy Sonata excellently, though I find this wonderful piece falls under the shadow of the more profound Franck.

The only reason to buy this disc, rather than the superior coupling with the Ravel Introduction and Allegro (with Ossian Ellis and the Melos Ensemble), must be because you want to hear the intensely poignant Chausson Poème. Kyung-Wha Chung plays the Poème wonderfully, with ravishing pathos, an excellent recording and my favourite (though I often listen to Milstein's recording). At the time of writing this, Chung's Chausson can otherwise be obtained coupled with her stunning best-ever performance of the Saint-Saens 3rd Violin Concerto.

I have loved the Cesar Franck sonata for years and Kyung Wha Chung gives a passionate performance.
The inclusion of the Debussy sonata and Poeme by Chausson complete a very fine disc.

I was recently given this disc, not knowing any of the music on it, and so coming to it all with an open mind. All I can say is that the Violin Sonata of Cesar Franck is an amazing piece and this performance, superbly recorded, utterly carries me away.

The Debussy is a great contrast to the Franck, is one of his last works and is in a style which reminds me of how much Bartok was influenced by Debussy.

I cannot at this stage pass comment on the Chausson, as I keep listening to the Franck.

The pianist, Radu Lupu plays an equal part in the first work on this recording and he did not get a mention in the leaflet attached
