César Franck – Piano Quintet in F minor
Gabriel Fauré – Piano Quartet No. 2 in G minor, Op. 45
The premiere of César Franck’s explosive Piano Quintet in F minor was met with controversy when the older and more conservative French composers denounced it as provocative. In contrast, younger composers like Gabriel Fauré and Claude Debussy were drawn to the music’s fiery and expressive palette – drawing parallels with Richard Wagner’s colossal operas.
Join the artists for a post-concert question-and-answer session immediately following the performance.
