Faure piano Preludes

Post by Rach3 » Wed Apr 17, 2019 9:15 am

Pires protegee pianist Julian Libeer plays live here Faure’s Preludes, complete, my recording Pierre-Alain Volondat on Naxos.Not often heard I think.
Per Wiki:
“ In Koechlin's view, "Apart from the Préludes of Chopin, it is hard to think of a collection of similar pieces that are so important". The critic Michael Oliver wrote, "Fauré's Préludes are among the subtlest and most elusive piano pieces in existence; they express deep but mingled emotions, sometimes with intense directness ... more often with the utmost economy and restraint and with mysteriously complex simplicity."Jessica Duchen calls them "unusual slivers of magical inventiveness."
