FRANCK, SZYMANOWSKI / Danczowska, Zimerman 4775903

In 1980 Kaja Danczowska and Krystian Zimerman made a magical record of Franck's Violin Sonata and Szymanowski's "Mythes" (and two short transcriptions), which more than deserves its place in DG's Originals series . . . an ideal combination of youthful ardour, delicately perfumed lyricism and superlative musicianship from both players. Szymanowski's "Mythes" is every bit as good and has the same mixture of warmth, sensitivity and virtuosity that is to be found in the Franck. These outstanding artists recorded three Mozart Violin Sonatas in 1979 . . . which can be recommended without hesitation.
