Brilliant music, beautifully played,
This review is from: Franck / Debussy / Tchaikovsky (Audio CD)
This disc contains nearly 69 minutes of delightful music for violin and piano, sensitively played. As the description seems incomplete, I will list the contents. Cesar Franck's sonata in A is the longest work, and is followed by Debussy's sonata in G minor. From Tchaikovsky there is a Humoresque (op. 10 no. 1), the well-known Souvenir D'un Lieu Cher and his Valse-Scherzo op.34.
From the contemplative opening of the Franck there is much to delight the ear, given by two consummate artists in complete harmony.
The sound is fairly close, and there is little from the rear speakers in surround mode, but both instruments are reproduced excellently; I suspect the violin has been assisted a little; it is never overwhelmed by the rich and deep-sounding piano.
This disc has been offered at a bargain price for some time; I would urge anyone likely to enjoy this music to take advantage. At full price, however, this is still a very attractive purchase.
