Note to You, A; Cesar Franck

07/23/2000

When Cesar Franck was a teacher at the Paris Conservatory, opera was all the rage in France. But he wasn’t one to follow the trends. In fact, he created an entirely new school of instrumental composition, based on the art of Bach. We’ll have a listen to the music of Franck today on ANTY.
