César Franck’s Violin Sonata is a diamond solitaire of the violin literature and is also popular with cellists. The outstanding qualities of both stringed instruments form a perfect union in David Riniker’s brand-new version for piano trio.

Shortly prior to his death, Franck kept a resolution that he had made many years before. His Trois Chorales creates the impression of a legacy in which he repeatedly refers to his great model Bach. But France’s magnificent organ romanticism, above all reflected in Widor’s works, is also reflected in this music. Very much in keeping with Franck, who arranged numerous organ works for piano, Karl-Andreas Kolly performs his own piano version.

The phenomenal bass register of the 'Manfred Bürki' Steinway concert grand piano of 1901 offers a profound foundation, and Kolly’s hands are skilful. This high-resolution SACD recording guarantees genuine three-dimensional listening pleasure in the home, with MDG’S 2 2 2 sound.
