Notes & Reviews:

César Franck's Prelude, Choral et Fugue is one of the ten true masterpieces of French piano music; its marvelously fervent atmosphere emanates from the work right from the first arpeggios. The choice of the triptych form and ternary structures also prevails in the Prelude, Aria et Final. The Sonata is one of the most brilliant sonatas for violin and piano ever composed. "Inger Södergren's performance of Franck's two great piano works show just the right touch of romanticism. In the Sonata, Anni Jodrey's personality is marvelously in tune: the piano becomes a partner in its own right." (Diapason)
