Notes & Reviews:

Fauré's chamber music is here performed by nine leading French-born musicians - violinist Renaud Capuçon and cellist Gautier Capuçon, the talented brothers who were featured on ABC's Nightline, violist Gérard Caussé, pianist Michel D'Alberto, award-winning string quartet Quatuor Ebène - and an honorary Frenchman, US-born, Paris-trained pianist Nicholas Angelich. Angelich and the Capuçon brothers have established themselves as a much sought-after performing trio, and Quatuor Ebène's 2009 recording of Debussy and Ravel's chamber music won numerous awards, including Gramophone's Record of the Year. The four CDs in this set comprise works for two, three, four and five instruments and span the composer's career from early works, influenced by his teacher Saint-Saëns, to the more rarefied compositions of his later years.

"It is music that, as violinist Renaud Capuçon says in an introduction to this superb set, he and his cellist brother Gautier have played throughout their careers, and such familiarity with music that gives up its expressive secrets and intimate thematic connections reluctantly, pays dividends in every performance here...it's a real treat to hear chamber-music playing of such assurance and enquiring intelligence." -The Guardian

"This set has top-flight casting from among the most gifted young musicians of the day. Their sensibility in Fauré’s chamber music can be appreciated in all manner of subtleties...with the Quatuor Ebène supreme in the String Quartet." -The Daily Telegraph

BBC Music Magazine
To have a five-disc set of all the pieces involving string, or strings and piano, is an utter delight...They are penetrating and utterly idiomatic, and combine to make a deeply rewarding set, even if there may be even better accounts of individual movements or works. The performances are generally a joy.

Classic FM Magazine
This all-French celebrity team approach Faure with the seriousness of purpose he deserves. They power the music from within, strongly delineating the rhythms, balancing their roles with stylish naturalness...Fabulous Faure playing, with all the intelligence, strength of character and profound understanding that his still underrated chamber music requires.

Gramophone Magazine
This is a smartly packaged box and an enterprising release, bringing together the complete works of Faure for string and piano played by a classy roster of artists...[The First Violin Sonata and First Piano Quartet] find Faure at his most open-hearted and the exuberant playing conveys this well. But immediately you're aware of a problem: the boomy, unbeautiful sound quality...If you can get over the sound issues, then there's much fine playing here.

Sunday Times
It would be hard to imagine greater advocates for FaurT than these superlative French musicians...These discs will provide hours - and years - of pleasure.
