Notes & Reviews:

After years of fruitful cooperation with Evgeni Kissin, Nikolaï Luganski, and Boris Berezovski, Alexander Kniazev has found in Plamena Mangova a worthy partner for this tribute to the Franco-Belgian school, and in particular to the outstanding violinist Eugène Ysaÿe. The composer, to whom the César Franck Sonata was dedicated, enjoyed playing the cello - and did so very competently - when he played music at home with friends. His warm and powerful sound gave the Franck Sonata the feel of a cathedral, and very soon the Sonata was published in a version for cello authorized by the composer and carried out by Jules Delsart. In his turn, Alexander Kniazev proposes his vision of a few other pages by Franck and Ysaÿe, among which the magnificent Poème élégiaque, source of Chausson's Poème, is a premiere on disc in a beautifully suited new form.
