EDUARD FRANCK (1817-1893): String Quintets in E Minor, Op. 15 and in C, Op. 51.
Catalogue Number: 02N038
Description: The 13th Audite release of music by the Francks is again exclusively of works by the elder composer. As you may recall from previous releases, Eduard stuck to Mendelssohn and Schumann stylistically throughout his long life and these quintets are no exception regardless of date (c.1844 and c.1870) while adding throughout both works a melancholic touch reminiscent of late Schubert. Christiane Edinger, Tassilo Kaiser (violins), Rainer Kimstedt, Uwe Martin Haiberg (violas), Katharina Maechler (cello). SACD hybrid
