Notes and Editorial Reviews

"I had not expected quite such unabashed, rose-tinted lyricism from Anne Akiko Meyers. There’s more to her playing than plushy vibrato and mechanistic brilliance; not that exhilaration or panache are minimised here, in this glowingly Romantic performance. Her Franck, too, ably justifies a more reflective, even cerebral approach, further distinguished by the tonal opulence of the playing. Not a performance to induce surges of adrenalin perhaps, but eminently well conceived and lucid... this remains a splendid performance overall, thanks in no small part to pianist Rohan de Silva." -- Michael Jameson, BBC Music Magazine "I had not expected quite such unabashed, rose-tinted lyricism from Anne Akiko Meyers.
