This release featuring violinist Rachel Kolly d'Alba, pianist Christian Chamorel and the Spektral Quartet Chicago, presents two major works of chamber music written at the dawn of the 20th century.

Few works of the period are more recognisable than César Franck's magnificent Violin Sonata. The work has been transcribed for nearly every instrument on the planet and is a permanent staple of the repertoire.

Franck's influence on Ernest Chausson's Concerto is unmistakable. A late-Romantic hybrid, the work blends elements of piano quintet and string quintet styles.

Rachel Kolly d’Alba signed worldwide with Warner Classics in 2010. Her first release of six sonatas by composer Eugène Ysaÿe burst onto the musical scene, receiving unanimously high praise from international press. Her Wigmore Hall debut in April 2014 was reviewed in Musical Opinion as "virtuosity of the most brilliant and effortless kind, with Christian Chamorel, time and again, proving himself to be a truly exceptional partner".
