Faure: Piano Quintets (Fine Arts Quartet) (Naxos: 8.570938)

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Gabriel Faur?®'s chamber works, long overshadowed by his popular Requiem , are regaining their rightful place, as the success of his Violin Sonatas and Cello Sonatas attests.

Dubbed the 'Master of Charm' by Debussy, Faur?® responded to the quasi-orchestral opportunities offered by the piano quintet with two gorgeous works whose frequent economy of means belies the wealth of his inventiveness. The highly chromatic Scherzo of the second Piano Quintet in particular gives Faur?®'s works of this period an authentic place in twentieth-century composition. Despite the stylistic and harmonic development evident in these works, as ever with Faur?® there are also moments of sheer beauty and melodic inspiration.

The Fine Arts Quartet have been praised as \One of the gold-plated names in chamber music" by The Washington Post "
