HASH(0x957588dc) out of 5 stars Well conducted Franck Orchestral works 6 Mar. 2009
By R. Rockwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I must thank the Rough Guide for recommending these very well conducted orchestral work of Franck by fellow Frenchman Tortelier. The CD begins with Les Eolides. (the winds a symphonic poem perfectly captures the Mistral winds of southern France,. The symphonic variation for piano and orchestra is considered by many critics to be Frank's masterpiece is modeled on Liszt's principal or thematic transformation but has none of his virtuoso playing instead it achieves it's effect by the variation which constantly changing and it is beautiful from start to finish. The soloist is Louis Lottie whose performance brought tears to m eyes.
It's hard to imagine that Franck's sole symphony was hated by the critics when it premiered because is charming from finish and well known for it's use of a solo cor anglais during the allegretto and also by the return of the theme at several times during the symphony, . Even though I have not heard any other versions of these works I cannot imagine a more dedicated version of these challenging and quite moving works
Please excuse any typos I have a neurologic disease
HASH(0x955b3c24) out of 5 stars Good but not great performances 22 Jan. 2014
By stevenrothbard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Franck Symphony is given a good, solid, while not inspired, performance by Torteilier and the BBC Phil., not quite up to the heights scaled by the classic accounts of Monteux and Dutoit. Unfortunately, Louis Lortie is just plain dull and pedestrain in the Symphonic Variations. Get the Rubinstein or the Larrocha for that. However, the tone poem "Les Eolides" is played very well, indeed. Lovely. Sound is a bit distant and even muddy in the Symphony and Variations. The tone poem fares better. Perhaps Torteilier should give us a record of Franck's lesser known orchestra works, since the short example on this disc is certainly attractive.
