Just finished listening to the Franck sonata played by Gidon Kremer and Oleg Maisenberg (live recording from 1980). Very individual interpretation. The first movement is one of the slowest I have ever heard, but Kremer somehow makes it convincing (he is one of the very few musicians who can sustain intensity in extremely slow tempi). The fast movements have plenty of fire and sparkle (and even a few neglible blunder from Maisenberg) and the third movement has plenty of introspection. The performance is not typical and may not apeal to everyone, but I find it interesting and refreshing. I hope Kremer will record the sonata again sometime, along with three Enescu sonatas which should be right up to his alley.
