Duke Arts Presents

Fauré Piano Quartett

Saturday, March 16, 2024 | 8:00 pm

Chamber Arts Series

Baldwin Auditorium


Fauré Quartett has been captivating audiences worldwide for over two decades with their innovative approach to classical music. Having met during their studies in 1995 for the 150th anniversary of their namesake Gabriel Fauré, the Fauré Quartett have established a reputation as leading interpreters of not only the French composer but also of works outside the mainstream repertoire.  

Their selected program opens with Mahler’s Klavierquartettsatz, a hauntingly beautiful single movement piece and the composer’s only known piece of instrumental chamber music. Next up is a work by the group’s namesake, Fauré’s Piano Quartet in c-minor, a work of stunning lyricism and emotional depth that perfectly captures the composer’s romantic sensibilities. Finally, the program culminates with Brahms’ Piano Quartet in g-minor, a monumental work that is regarded by many as one of the greatest chamber music compositions of all time. With its fiery passion, soaring melodies, and intricate counterpoint, Brahms’ masterpiece will bring the evening to a thrilling close.
