Gabriel Fauré’s musical language bridges a gap between the romanticism of the 19th century and the new worlds of music which appeared in the 20th, employing subtle harmonic changes and a gift for melody to combine innovation with an entirely personal idiom. His First Piano Quartet is filled with characteristic French colour and lyricism, and the Piano Trio in D minor is a late work whose musical language is familiar from his songs. Both the Pavane and the popular Sicilienne express nostalgia for earlier times, and the short Pièce has great simplicity and charm.

Gramophone Magazine

December 2013

“This is a delectable way into Faure's chamber music should it be unfamiliar territory...there's warmth aplenty coupled with an ease with its technical demands and a wonderful conversational quality...The very late Piano Trio is performed with an unusual directness that is appealing...All in all, a bit of a bargain.”

“Their ensemble and coordination...are impeccable...Intonation is spot-on, string tone is rich and the balance between piano and strings is just right...Whether you are looking to discover Fauré’s chamber music for the first time or are looking for new, dynamic and well-engineered performances to add to your collection, this album is definitely worth your consideration.”
