An Early Evening Stroll
In today’s Early Evening Stroll we highlight a composer called Franck. No, it’s not about the Belgian César, but the German Eduard Franck.
Eduard Franck was born in 1817 and he died in 1893. He was one of Mendelssohn’s apprentices and an outstanding pianist, whose oeuvre has stayed completely unknown for a long time. This was mainly his own fault, because he was a perfectionist and kept postponing the publication of his works.
