After the remarkable premiere recordings of the two String Quartets Op. 54 and 55, the Edinger Quartet now presents the third extant work by Eduard Franck of this genre, the F minor Quartet, Op. 49. The work is written in the tradition of Mendelssohn but embodies Eduard Franck's own individual musical language and is marked by great richness in contrasts and strong dramatic flair. The recording of Eduard Franck's chamber music is completed by the D major Piano Quintet, op. 45. Cantabile themes are prominent in this work, later receiving a strongly modulatory treatment. Christiane Edinger, Professor in Lübeck, and the Edinger Quartet have taken on the task of cultivating and preserving neglected repertoire. The success of this commitment is heard in the convincing interpretations of these rediscovered masterworks of chamber music, as well as in the ensemble's fruitful collaboration with the internationally renowned pianist James Tocco.
