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)

J.S.BachO Seelenparadies (from Cantata No. 172, Erschallet, ihr Lieder, erklinget, ihr Saiten!)

O paradise of souls, 
Through which God’s Spirit wafteth,

Who at creation blew, 
The Spirit ever present; 
Rise, rise, prepare thyself, 
Thy Comforter is near.
