The requirements have changed. Whoever is playing chamber music today
can’t be limited to the rules from decades ago. Expectations regarding the
diversity of repertoire have also changed, which creates room for ensembles like
the Fauré Quartett. They discover new sound fields in chamber music and perform
compositions outside of mainstream repertoire. They are visionary in their
approach and highly regarded for their technique and nuance.This versatile group
has performed and recorded everything from Brahms to the Beach Boys, from
Mendelssohn to Steely Dan, from Mozart to System of a Down. Join us as they take
the stage to explore old repertoire that will become shiny and new.
