Gabriel Fauré: Works for Violin & Piano
Jane Gordon (violin)
Jan Rautio (piano)
Bridging the end of Romanticism and the beginnings of Modernism, Gabriel Fauré is considered to be one of the most important French composers of the nineteenth and early- twentieth centuries. His music is a testament to the seismic changes that he lived through, undoubtedly reflected in his distinctive writing.
This collection of Fauré’s works for violin and piano are performed on period instruments: an 1890s Érard piano and a violin by Guaneri, recreating the composer’s sound world. Duo Jane Gordon (violin) and Jan Rautio (piano) here celebrate their significant milestone of two decades of musical partnership, having collaborated together on hundreds of artistic projects.
