Franck's Sonata is one of the most famous works in the chamber music repertoire. This new Wiener Urtext Edition is based on the first edition with Franck's final corrections. Inconsistencies between the piano score and the solo part are due to annotations by the violinist Eugne Ysaye, the dedicatee who was given the work as a wedding present. This version, likely to have been authorized by Franck, is published for the first time in an Urtext edition. Gunther Ludwig, in his preface, suggests a carefully considered, cerebral approach to this highlight of the repertoire.

  • April 15, 2009 Clear, mostly good page turns .

    Not really "urtext" though. Missing a critical D sharp in m. 28 of first movement and two D naturals in Mvt. 2, measures 104 and 106. Omissions not mentioned in the commentary, although other editions/recordings have those, and they make a lot of sense. I believe they are just...

    mistakes. Haven't inspected the violin part. Overall good value.
