     “This quartet thinks and breathes as one, focused on a singular, clear vision for their music making." -- Toronto Star

    Known for their sterling musicianship, the Fauré Quartett has become a worldwide phenomenon, unearthing novel approaches to timeless pieces. We bring the ensemble back to our stage, where they lend their style to a concert featuring the romanticism of the late 19th century. Fauré, often compared to Schumann, provides a quartet showcasing the latter’s poetic art of the song and his love for chamber music, at a time when Fauré and d’Indy sought to add diversity to Europe’s music scene. This program is a perfect setting for the Faure Quartett’s dynamic approach and playing.
