Notes & Reviews:

"Monteux's Franck Symphony, recorded with the Chicago Symphony in 1961, remains the best on disc. Tension always underlies the brooding; this is work of clarity, control, focus, and power, which never turns to Wagnerian sludge. Listen to the firmness of the opening passage of the Allegretto; it's beautiful and lyrical, but there's nothing timid or overly pretty about it. Throughout, the woodwinds enjoy a particularly realistic presence, and Monteux and the engineers maintain excellent clarity of texture... " -James Reel, Fanfare
