Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
FaurT's Piano Quartet 2 is also on the program in a fine rendition. It is stylistically similar to Piano Quartet 1. It uses a lot of churning accompaniment figures in the piano part and seems pretty turbulent, coming from the composer of songs like 'Apres un Reve', 'Claire de Lune', and the Pavane. The remaining selections are arrangements of short works. Kungsbacka's other FaurT release had some of these as well, and while they are enjoyable and well played, they feel like filler. I might have preferred a single CD of just the two quartets and the violin version of the trio.

Gabriel Fauré's chamber works, long overshadowed by his popular Requiem (Naxos 8.550765), are regaining their rightful place. This new release from the Kungsbacka Piano Trio follows their recording of Fauré's First Piano Quartet and other chamber works (8.573042), described by Gramophone as 'a delectable way into Fauré's chamber music'. The program features the less frequently heard original version, with clarinet, of the Piano Trio, the Second Piano Quartet, which includes an evocation of the bells of Cadirac near the composer's home, the Romances sans paroles, described by Marcel Proust as 'intoxicating' and one of Fauré's most famous works, the Berceuse from the Dolly Suite.
