Fin de siècle - Chausson & Franck

with: Christian Chamorel, piano
Spektral Quartet Chicago



Two masterpieces from the end of the last century: the rightly famous Sonata by Franck, and the breathtaking but too rare Concert by Chausson. All pieces traveling between grandeur and despair, intimacy of the soul and firy statements of the mind... These two works are the reason why Rachel became a violinist.
