The most brilliant of Belgian composer César Franck's compositions were written during the final decade of his life; the Symphonic Variations for piano and orchestra, the famous Violin Sonata, the D major String Quartet, and, perhaps most important, the Symphony in D minor are all the products of a single, remarkable five-year period. The Symphony, by no means an immediate success with critics or audiences, has nevertheless become so fused with the popular image of César Franck that it is nearly impossible to think of him without also thinking of this 40-minute orchestral juggernaut.

…While the better-known Franck symphony receives top billing on this album, Ernest Chausson's Symphony in B flat is a shining example of a student surpassing his teacher. Chausson's handling of the orchestra seems much more deft and natural. While elements of Franck's teaching are quite clear, so too are the influences of Wagner and Debussy. The sweeping melodies and lush accompaniments are again handled with the utmost attention to detail by Janowski and the OSR.

Takashi Asahina was born in Tokyo on July 9, 1908. In June 1927 he listened to a concert of the New Symphony Orchestra (the present NHK Symphony Orchestra) with Emanuel Metter, a Russian conductor who took refuge in Japan. Kalinnikov's First Symphony, conducted by Metter, was full of the atmosphere of nineteenth-century romanticism and impressed him deeply…

Leonard Bernstein's rendition of the Franck Symphony, is typically larger than life, with a huge contrast of tempo and a typically generous emotional outpouring. What makes this disc even more special, however, is the inclusion of what is probably the best-ever performance of Roussel's fabulous Third Symphony. - David Hurwitz, Editorial Reviews - Amazon.com

Musicweb:
Monteux's Franck D Minor with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is one of his best ever recordings of any repertoire with any orchestra. This is a reading to make you forget any faults in the work's form or thematic material as it sweeps you away with its energy and enthusiasm..
If you love this piece, ..you must have Monteux's. If you do not know this piece yet, then you should let Monteux introduce you. For Franckophiles young and old, Monteux's reading is essential.

This CD features two quite lovely piano quintets, beautifully played by a quartet of players from the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra with Clifford Curzon at the piano. The first piece is by Antonin Dvorak, who composed two piano quintets. The first of these is a relatively early work that Dvorak composed in 1872 when he was 31. The second of his quintets was composed only 15 years later and remains one of his most popular chamber works. The other piece on the CD is by César Franck and, along with his other major chamber works - the violin sonata and the string quartet - reminds the listener of the atmosphere of Franck's best known work, the symphony in d minor.
