By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 23, 2010
Format: Audio CD
I've adored the playing of Claude Frank ever since his sensational recording of all the Beethoven sonatas came out in 1971 on RCA LPs (now available, thank goodness, on CD: Beethoven: The Complete Piano Sonatas. I much preferred them to the Alfred Brendel recordings that had come out not much earlier. Frank was a student, for seven years or so, of the legendary Beethoven exponent, Artur Schnabel. His playing is similar to Schnabel's in the sense that nothing is for show, everything is for the message of the music. One hears Frank's playing and is immediately transported into a musical realm that is only about the music, not about virtuosity, not about personal quirks nor efforts to shock or amaze. And yet one hears this playing with delight if only because everything simply seems 'right'. Somehow, without any tricks or gimmicks, Frank manages to imbue spirituality, grace, high spirits, or seriousness without pomposity in his playing.

I have had the great pleasure of hearing Frank play many times over the years, both alone and with orchestra, and latterly with his talented violinist daughter Pamela Frank. I was never disappointed and more often than not I was thrilled.

When I saw this two-CD set I immediately assumed, from its title "Claude Frank: 85th Birthday Celebration", that it was a compilation of earlier recordings. But to my great pleasure it turned out that these performances were indeed recorded during Frank's 80s, in 2008 and 2009. That's, ahem, a little bit of cheating as Frank was only 82 and 83 when he made the recordings. This year, 2010, was when he celebrated his 85th birthday. But the great thing is that the playing is as it always was.

I have been listening to "Claude Frank 85th Birthday Celebration" almost non-stop. This is a two cd set, and is well worth the money. Mr Frank's playing is fantastic. This is my first time listening to his work, and am planning to buy some more cds of Claude Frank. What adds to the pleasure of listening to these cds, is the beautiful cover art.
