Fauré was fortunate enough to have been taught by Saint-Saëns and the two developed a lifelong friendship, so it’s fitting that this programme explores and highlights their differing approaches in these early piano quartets. Brooding, charming, dark, rhythmic, melodic, glittering and humorous by turns, these masterpieces are rightly known as some of the loveliest chamber music for this combination of instruments.

Michael Bochmann MBE “A musician, who by insisting on drawing humbly from the well of life and nature, is continuously perceptive and has ever more to offer” (George Hadjinikos). “(The Trio)… played with such unanimity of thought and feeling, with such varied colour and so much space around their individual parts…” (Hereford Times).
