Notes & Reviews:

Uri Pianka returns to Romeo Records with a new CD featuring one of the staples of the Romantic chamber music repertoire, Cesar Franck's Violin Sonata. It is coupled with the delightful Mendelssohn Sonata for Violin and Piano and Fritz Kreisler fills out the disc with two splendid arrangements for violin. Pianka, former Concertmaster of the Houston Symphony Orchestra, delivers one of the finest accounts of the Franck Sonata available on CD. His partner in these performances, Houston native, Timothy Hester, provides a positive and exceedingly musical contribution.
