Gabriel Fauré’s chamber works, long overshadowed by his popular Requiem, 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 (8573042), described by Gramophone as ‘a delectable way into Fauré’s chamber music’.

The programme 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.

The Kungsbacka Piano Trio has established a fine reputation over the years through their acclaimed Naxos recordings of Haydn and Mozart Piano Trios. They are joined by viola player Philip Dukes and the renowned clarinetist Richard Hosford, a performer whose contribution to our recording of the music of Ian Venables (8572514) was considered “exemplary’, the release given five stars by BBC Music Magazine.
