Baritone Matthias Goerne, soprano Chen Reiss and cellist Eric Picard come together at Paris’s renowned Salle Pleyel for a concert of Fauré’s works for chorus and orchestra.

They are joined by the Orchestre de Paris under the baton of its new musical director, the GRAMMY Award-winning conductor Paavo Järvi. Central to the programme is Fauré’s profound and graceful Requiem, which is complemented by the Cantique de Jean Racine and the rarely performed psalm-setting Super flumina Babylonis, all beautifully sung by the Choeur de l’Orchestre de Paris, and imbued with a delicate intensity by Järvi.

With the expressive Élégie for cello and orchestra, this is a luxurious all-Fauré event.

Including a 15 mins Interview with Paavo Järvi as a bonus.

International Record Review

June 2012

“the expert choir's native French vowel sounds are a joy in themselves, [and] Eric Picard gives a mesmerising account of the haunting cello Elegie...If that wasn't enough, there follows a performance of the Requiem with the sensational Chen Reiss and Matthias Goerne the equal of any I have heard live or on disc...Unmissable.”

Gramophone Magazine

May 2012

“This is an appealing concert that cleverly mixes the familiar with the unfamiliar and includes a well-known piece in an unfamiliar guise...Jarvi keeps the music flowing along nicely...The violas and cellos are wonderfully expressive throughout...Isabelle Soulard's video direction is pleasingly unobtrusive.”

BBC Music Magazine
