Faure's musical language bridged a gap between 19th-century Romanticism and the music that appeared with the new century, developing and evolving, but retaining its own fundamental characteristics.
His gift for melody, subtle harmonic idiom, judicious and highly personal use of contemporary innovations make for enriching listening, whether in the popular Sicilienne, Pavane and other short pieces or in his two tuneful and impeccably crafted Cello Sonatas.
Since receiving top prizes, including the Diploma of the Tchaikovsky Competition, Moscow, and First Prize of the international Cello Competition Belgrade, ina-Esther Joost Ben-Sasson has been in high demand as a soloist all over the world.
