The world of César Franck (1822-90)

The piano, king of instruments

After their work on the music of Édouard Lalo in 2015 (culminating in the recording and publication of his complete concertante works), of Camille Saint-Saëns and Fernand de La Tombelle in 2016, and of Antoine Reicha in 2017 (resulting in a boxed set of three CDs coproduced with Alpha Classics), The Palazzetto Bru Zane and the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth have invited several young soloists to gather around César Franck’s œuvre in Venice during the festival dedicated to the composer. Following the piano trios performed by Anna Egholm, Ari Evan and Frank Braley on 2 April, Louis Lortie and Jonathan Fournet will play piano duets by César Franck.
