Notes & Reviews:

Continuing the recording series of instrumental music by Eduard Franck which already includes his Violin Concertos Op. 30 and Op. 57, and also his Symphonies Op. 42 and Op. 47, Audite now presents Franck's orchestral works. Once again, we hear music of the highest technical quality as well as a characteristic idiom. All were written during the 1840s when Franck set out on his career as a composer, attracting the interest of the music critics who from this time onwards were increasingly to influence musical history. The works recorded here reveal an attractive amalgamation of classicist and progressive trends, referring on the one hand to Schumann and Brahms, and on the other to Wagner and Liszt. They more than hold their own as original contributions to nineteenth century instrumental music.

BBC Music Magazine
No relation to Cesare, Eduard Franck's (1817-93) music has echoes of Mendelssohn, Berlioz and Schumann. Pleasant, well-crafted but hardly earth-shattering, in lively recorded premieres.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
The Swedish conductor Ola Rudner has the expert Wnrttemberg players operating at peak efficiency, and sound is as warm and romantic as the music. If you have the least affection for music in the style of Schumann and Raff, get this and play it through and I guarantee you'll want to seek out other music of Eduard Franck.
