César Franck at 200

They say it’s the quiet ones that you need to watch, and behind his polite exterior, composer César Franck had a musical imagination that blazed with passion. 200 years since Franck’s birth, Robert Reimer conducts two of his masterpieces: the tempestuous musical fairytale Le Chasseur Maudit, and the stirring, storm-tossed Symphony in D minor. In between, HK Phil Principal Viola Andrew Ling plays Bartók’s haunting Viola Concerto — music of exile, filled with song and dance, and tingling with Hungarian spice.
