CD of the Week (31 August – 4 September)

Ironwood, Farrenc & Saint-Saëns: Romantic Dreams

Acclaimed period-instrument ensemble Ironwood revive the sounds of the French Romantic through works by Louise Farrenc and Camille Saint-Saëns. These wonderful piano quintets provide contrasting glimpses of the rapidly changing tastes of mid-19th-century Paris, from the Schubertian Classicism in Farrenc’s piece to Saint-Saëns’ incredible work that seems to move from the Baroque to Blondie (yes, really!) via cabaret and the shimmering sounds of early Hollywood.

Fine Music Sydney subscribers have a chance to win a copy of Farrenc & Saint-Saëns: Romantic Dreams courtesy of Ironwood Ensemble. To enter the draw, register your details using the entry form below. Winners will be notified by email.
