Franck, Vienna Festival Orchestra - Conducted By Hans Swarowsky – Symphony in D Minor. Composed By – César Franck. A. First Movement: Lento - Allegro Non Troppo.
The Symphony in D minor is the most famous orchestral work and the only mature symphony written by the 19th-century naturalised French composer César Franck. After two years of work, the symphony was completed 22 August 1888. It was premiered at the Paris Conservatory on 17 February 1889 under the direction of Jules Garcin. Franck dedicated it to his pupil Henri Duparc.
The Franck D minor Symphony can be a treacherous undertaking for almost any orchestra. Its highly repetitive nature sets the trap for what could be a boring, monotonous performance if not executed with a great deal of forward-moving energy and attention to nuance. Fortunately, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande under the direction of Marek Janowski does not fall into this trap. The first movement is very driven. The fateful three-note motive, presented in all its permutations of augmentation and diminution, is kept interesting and is highlighted even when it may otherwise be obscured by other. Chausson's handling of the orchestra seems much more deft and natural. While elements of Franck's teaching are quite clear, so too are the influences of Wagner and Debussy. The sweeping melodies and lush accompaniments are again handled with the utmost attention to detail by Janowski and the OSR.

The most brilliant of Belgian composer César Franck's compositions were written during the final decade of his life; the Symphonic Variations for piano and orchestra, the famous Violin Sonata, the D major String Quartet, and, perhaps most important, the Symphony in D minor are all the products of a single, remarkable five-year period. The Symphony, by no means an immediate success with critics or audiences, has nevertheless become so fused with the popular image of César Franck that it is nearly impossible to think of him without also thinking of this 40-minute orchestral juggernaut
