Franck, Cesar Auguste    1822-1890    Belgium

       Panis Angelicus (Franck)

1    Main tune


   Symphony in D minor
       Symphony in D minor 1st movement (Franck)

1    This symphony opens with an atmosphere of darkness and doubt, created by a deep theme in D minor played by the cellos and double basses. The first three notes of this form a sort of leit-motiv for the whole symphony.


2    This theme follows the dark and slow introduction, and is a great contrast, marked allegro non troppo, and played energetically by all the strings.


3    This is the second-most important theme of this movement. It represents a great climax, in F major, played by the full orchestra fortissimo.

       Symphony in D minor 2nd movement (Franck)

1    This lyrical tune played on the cor anglais is loosely related to the leitmotiv in the opening passage of the first movement.


2    This new tune on clarinet and french horn is played twice. But the second time around, the tune reaches up from the high Db to an even higher D natural. This is an unexpected twist, a real trademark of Franck's style.

       Symphony in D minor 3rd movement (Franck)

1    This tune emerges in the 3rd movement, after a boisterous introduction. It is played quietly on the cellos and bassoons, but it is a happy, relaxed tune.
