Uri Pianka returns to Roméo Records with a new CD featuring one of the staples of the Romantic chamber music repertoire, Cesar Franck's Violi Sonta.
It is coupled with the delightful Mendelssohn Sonata for Violin and Piano and the disc is filled out with two splendid arrangements for violin by Fritz Kreisler. Pianka, former Concertmaster of the Houston Symphony Orchestra, delivers one of the finest accounts of the Franck Sonata available on CD.
His partner in these performances, Houston native, Timothy Hester, provides a positive and exceedingly musical contribution.
