Remembering Gabriel Fauré

November 4, 2009

Today is (if I did not stumble in my counting) the 85th anniversary of the death of Gabriel Fauré.  Fauré’s music is not very well known today, apart from a few pieces like his (justly admired) Requiem and Cantique de Jean Racine.  I am no great expert on his music, but I do consider him to be among my favourite composers.  His music is gentle, always elegant and melodic, and drenched in beauty.  I like it very much.

Here is a short, and little known, piece for cello and piano.

Requiescat in pace.
