Brace yourself. Toward the end of the last century, Franck’s biographer, Joel-Marie Fauquet, published his discovery of the composer’s penciled metronome markings for the Six Pièces indicating traversals considerably brisker than what we had become accustomed to, while supporting the evidence of recordings of the Third Choral, the Cantabile, and the Pastorale made in 1930 by Franck’s pupil, Charles Tournemire, whose startlingly fast-forward presentations, so to speak, had theretofore been ascribed to personal idiosyncrasy or to the limitations of the 78-rpm disc.
