Notes & Reviews:

Faure's music has always stood somewhat apart, sometimes overlooked and misunderstood, due to his refusal to belong to any of the highly politicized camps (Wagnerians, Franckists, etc.). His greatest strengths lay in the realms of song and chamber music: many of his works in both categories are treasured by performers and familiar to listeners. The First Piano Quartet is one of his most frequently performed compositions. The Second Quartet, one of his finest works, however, is rarely performed.
