Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Where would César Franck (1822-90) stand in the history of music had his output, like that of his disciple Henri Duparc, been limited to a handful of melodies and duets? Not in the forefront, one is tempted to reply. Yet, the question deserves looking into: apart from "Nocturne" and "La Procession" how well do we really know these melodies which have been eclipsed - together with the entirety of his vocal works - by his organ pieces, Quintet, Violin Sonata and his Symphony? Upon listening to this recording many will experience the surprise of discovering a little known aspect of the composer of "Les Béatitudes", whose inspiration came not from the angels but rather from the most noble aspirations and romantic ruptures of Victor Hugo. Joining the published melodies is an important, unpublished one, "A cette terre où l'on ploie sa tente" (V. Hugo, 1847), which enhances a recital truly representative Franck's artistic development. It is a romance written at the age of thirteen which represents Franck's debut as a composer. Some fifty-five years later, melodies would mark the penultimate moments of his career.
