Both Pascal Roge and Lorin Maazel were one of the mainstays of the Decca roster for several years, the former famed for the clarity of his vision in much French music, the latter recording vast tracts of repertoire with both, the Vienna Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra, in often white-hot performances. The Franck Symphony blazes away, with both conviction and sonic distinction. Its original LP coupling, the Variations symphoniques, receives its first international release on CD. And Bartok's 'Opus 1', his Rhapsody for piano and orchestra, which, although a juvenile work, was performed by Bartok all the way through his pianoplaying career. It was recorded by Roge as a companion to his thrilling recordings of the Bartok concertos with Weller and the LPO.

"incisiveness and clarity" - (Franck: Symphony) Gramophone.

"The delicacy of [Roge's] playing in the slow section, is most beautiful in its cool clarity" - (Franck: Variations symphoniques) Gramophone.

"The orchestral playing [in the Symphony] is crisp and polished and the performances are exciting ... In the Variations Pascal Roge shows himself to be particularly sensitive to dynamic shadings and reveals a fine blend of intelligence and technique. ... Brilliant recording." - (Franck) Penguin Guide.

"With the help of vivid and brilliant Decca recording (Kingsway Hall the venue) Roge and Weller present a colourful and strongreading, bringing out the Lisztian echoes" - (Bartok: Rhapsody) Gramophone.
