Featuring string players from the world-renowned Berliner Philharmoniker and the French pianist Kim Barbier, this first album by the Berlin Piano Quartet on Sony Classical brings together works by Brahms, Fauré, and Schnittke. Gabriel Fauré’s Piano Quartet No. 1 in C minor, op. 15 begins with a grand gesture. The piece was premiered on 14 February 1880 at a concert of the Société National de Musique, established to promote French orchestral and chamber music works. With irresistible momentum, it comes to an end in a rhythmically agile Finale, textured by juxtaposing triplets (predominantly in the piano) against punctuated rhythms in the strings.
