Daniel Barenboim

Franck: Tone Poems (CD)

A wonderful collection of Franck tone poems, most of them drawn from Daniel Barenboim’s now deleted recordings for Deutsche Grammophon and adding the wonderfully airborne Ansermet performance of ‘Les Eolides’. Try the sheer orchestral terror of ‘Le Chasseur Maudit’ (‘The Accursed Huntsman’) or the blazing brass of ‘Redemption’ for sonic thrills or revel in the extraordinary eroticism of ‘Psyche’ – these wonderful works and recordings are long overdue for exhumation.
