Strauss, Franck | Violinsonaten

Brieuc Vourch - Guillaume Vincent

Recorded in the Immanuelschurch Wuppertal, 2020


  • Richard Strauss | Sonata for Violin and Piano in E-Flat Major, op. 18
  • César Franck | Sonata for Piano and Violin in A Major

  • Brieuc Vourch (violin)
  • Guillaume Vincent (piano)
  • Sonatas by Strauss & Franck – A radical quest for authenticity

    “Guillaume and I worked day and night on both pieces and tried to do justice to every phrase, to give it contour and depth. During this radical quest for authenticity, we went to our utmost limits and beyond to comprehend these scores as profoundly as possible, to extract the composers' substance, in order to penetrate the endless musical universe of Strauss and Franck. This is because we know that we have to make 'a strong statement' amid the ocean of legendary recordings. We believe that we have achieved this and hope our listeners can feel and hear it.”
    Brieuc Vourch

    Brieuc Vourch and Guillaume Vincent are kindred spirits whose ensemble playing always displays a natural coherence. With the shimmering intensity of the sound they produce, their effortless virtuosity and, above all, their emotional energy and eloquent facility, these two artists breathe completely new life into César Franck and especially the young Richard Strauss.

    pizzicato - Supersonic pizzicato Award

    ... contrasting world of the Franck Sonata … undoubtedly one of the most exciting interpretations I know.
    Rémy Franck, 16/07/2021

    Classiquenews.com - Clic Summer 2021 Award

    Jamais uniforme ni démonstratif, le violon somptueux de Brieuc Vourch (argument baroque de premier plan : Francesco Ruggeri, 1690), séduit, enchante, et captive même par sa vibration sincère et viscéralement intime. L'élève de Perlman à New York, se montre fidèle à son maître : sur le souffle, d'une profonde élégance, jamais creuse, toujours juste, d'une vitalité arachnénenne. Remarquable récital.

    If you want to hear engaged and committed playing I would recommend this without hesitation.
    Jean-Yves Duperron, August 2021


    From the very first notes, I was struck by the stunning clarity of the recorded sound. … And let’s be clear right upfront, this is one spectacular-sounding recording. … The playing and the recorded sound are simply magnificent. I can’t offer more praise than that.

    The Franck sonata is the big hit … Even if you’ve heard this hundets of times, this version will wake you up.
