Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes…
William Shakespeare (1564-1616): Hamlet (1601)

César Franck: Piano Quintet in F minor

JOSHUA BELL & PAMELA FRANCK (violins), NOBUKO IMAI (viola) & STEPHEN ISSERLIS (cello). MARC-ANDRÊ HAMELIN (piano).

Piano Quintet in F minor is a quintet for piano, 2 violins, viola, and cello. The work was composed in 1879 and has been described as one of Franck’s chief achievements alongside his other late works such as Symphony in D minor, the Symphonic Variations and the Violin Sonata.

The work was premiered with Camille Saint-Saëns playing the piano part, which Franck had written out for him with an appended note: “To my good friend Camille Saint-Saëns”. A minor scandal ensued when at the piece’s completion, Saint-Saëns walked off stage leaving the score open at the piano, a gesture which was interpreted as mark of disdain. (via Wikipedia)
