Cesar Franck 's Piano Quintet was written in 1878 and first performed at a concert of the Societe Nationale de Musique in January, 1880, with Saint-Saens as the pianist. It is the first of Franck's really mature works exploiting his method of cyclic construction. Like all his later works, the Piano Quintet reflects his personal characteristics as a man with extraordinary fidelity. His kindliness, idealism, mysticism, and sentimentality all find expression here.

He played for England in Internationals throughout the four seasons 1920 to 1923 against Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and France, for those were the days when the latter competed.
