Are the Three Chorales Cesar Franck’s testament? Nothing is less certain, as death seems to have brutally interrupted a feverish, all-out creative thrust, to which the operas Hulda and Ghiselle bear witness, as does the project for a cello sonata as well. In these Chorales he pursues with an eternal youth his lasting endeavour of creating a drama our of form alone, turning the supposedly decorative instrument into the interpreter of the most heartrending romanticism.
