Orchestral music played a key role in the output of C├ęsar Franck throughout his career. He accorded an important and innovative place to the symphonic poem, a new genre of the Romantic era: Ce qu'on entend sur la montagne actually dates from 1846, two years before Franz Liszt's composition of the same name! As a virtuoso pianist himself, Franck also produced a number of concertante works, from early pieces written for his own performance - a few brilliant sets of variations and a youthful concerto - to the famous Symphonic Variations (1885). The Symphony in D minor of 1887 was one of the cornerstones of the renewal of the genre in France, coming between Saint-Sa├źns's Third Symphony (1886) and Chausson's Symphony (1899). The Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Li├Ęge presents here the first genuinely complete survey of this orchestral and concertante repertory, assembling recordings from recent years and some new productions.
