CD Reviews

Fine Franck et al.
Stephen Ross Pierce | Cincinnati, OH USA | 07/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For lovers of the Franck sonata, Zimerman's performance is a good enough reason to purchuse this disc. Danczowska's playing in the sonata is excellent too but some will prefer Kyung-Wha Chung in her legendary account with Lupu on Decca (which is another magnificent version of the Franck). The Szymanowski pieces are fiendishly difficult and given superb performances. A wonderful disc."
