"If all the world's depressed people had somehow been squeezed into St. John's to hear this concert, the pharmaceutical companies would be out of business. Who needs pills to lift the spirits when we have the six Bach motets, and John Eliot Gardiner's Monteverdi Choir to sing them?" -- The Times

Audite: Audite97.686

Eduard Franck composed music of the highest technical quality and a highly recognizable personal style. Though influenced by Schumann and Brahms on one hand, and Wagner and Liszt on the other, his orchestral compositions more than stand on their own as original contributions to 19th century instrumental music.

Carl Davis: CDC015

Carl Davis presents a new recording of Charlie Chaplin's original score for City Lights. "I did not write it down," said Chaplin with excessive modesty, "I 'la-laed it... it's all simple music to keep with my character."
