Notes and Editorial Reviews

Chamber works by Faure?, the influential composer who bridged the Romantic and Modern era in French music, are performed by a magnificent line-up of French and French-trained musicians.

Quintessentially Gallic in its amalgam of classical rigour, inventive harmonic language and subtle, but arresting sensuality, Faure?’s chamber music is here performed by nine leading French-born musicians – violinist Renaud Capuc?on, violist Ge?rard Causse?, cellists Gautier Capuc?on and Raphae?l Merlin, pianist Michel Dalberto, string quartet Quatuor Ebe?ne – and an honorary Frenchman, US-born, Paris-trained pianist Nicholas Angelich. The five CDs comprise works for two, three, four and five instruments and span the composer’s career from
Read more early works, influenced by his teacher Saint-Sae?ns, to the more rarefied compositions of his later years. Faure?’s String Quartet, composed at the end of his life became Gramophone’s 2009 Record of the Year, also winning Germany’s Echo Klassik Award 2009, Belgium’s Prix Caecilia 2009, and, in 2010, France’s Victoire de la Musique.

 Good stuff! October 18, 2012 By Paul Burgess (Wheaton, IL) See All My Reviews "I really enjoyed listening to this album. I got it originally because I have been intrigued by the brothers who play violin and cello. They are really a very strong ensemble by themselves and with others. Of course, the music of Faure is really wonderful. This is definitely worth a listen!" Report Abuse
