Philip Dukes (viola), Kungsbacka Piano Trio - Malin Broman (violin), Jesper Svedberg (cello), Simon Crawford-Phillips (piano)
Gabriel Faure's musical language bridges 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 within an entirely personal idiom. His First Piano Quartet is filled with characteristic French colour and lyricism, while 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 Piece has great simplicity and charm.
