Following the release of their highly praised Naxos recording of Faure' Piano Quintets -'warmly expressive, their phrasing generous and intense' -Cristina Ortiz and the Fine Arts Quartet again join forces for this recording of Franck' Piano Quintet,

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Cesear Franck (1822-1890) enjoyed a long career as an organist and composer, but he is best remembered for a series of masterworks composed during the last decade of his life. With his life of quiet, continuous effort culminating in romanticism, Franck is an inspiring figure. Franck's great decade of composition began and ended with works of chamber music. The Piano Quintet in f minor dates from 1880 while the String Quartet in D major was composed in 1890 just before Franck's death. Both the Quintet and the Quartet receive impassioned performances on this new Naxos CD with the Fine Arts Quartet and pianist Christina Ortiz.

I am familiar with other recordings of these works. The Quator Ludwig together with pianist Michael Levinas has an outstanding recording of the Quintet on Naxos. César Franck: Piano Quintet; Ernest Chausson: String Quartet And the Juilliard String Quartet has made a classic recording of the unfortunately too-little-known Quartet.String Quartets By Franck And Smetana With these and other fine recordings, this CD has a sweeping unabashedly passionate character that sets it apart. This is romantic music played with conviction, emotion, and contrast in long searing vibrato-filled phrases. The music drew me in at the outset and never let go.

The Quintet on any reading is a work of highly-charged emotion. Many listeners and writers of program notes find the music erotically charged. Camille Saint-Saens who first performed the virtuosic piano part vehemently disapproved of this work which Franck had dedicated to him.

This CD contains a melodramatic piano quintet and a turgid quartet. The piano playing is quite good and I'd like to hear this pianist playing the Brahms or Dvorak piano quintet rather than Franck's overheated (overcooked?) opus. The quartet may well be a marvel of cyclic construction but, as it is presented here, it is simply a dense mass of rather ugly sounds.
