CD-Release: The Secret Fauré II

After the orchestral songs in the first part of the project the Sinfonieorchester Basel under the baton of chief conductor Ivor Bolton now presents a number of other orchestral and concert works of the French composer Gabriel Fauré.


“Originally written for the salon (and premiered there with Fauré at the piano), the composer himself edited his fantasies and berceuses for violin or violoncello and piano for orchestra already during his lifetime. The Sinfonieorchester Basel under Ivor Bolton plays these editions with great beauty.”

“The Sinfonieorchester Basel under the leadership of Ivor Bolton recorded the ten pieces of this album on the basis of a new Bärenreiter Critical Complete Edition and amazes with great translucency and dynamic subtleties. The tonal balance with the violin, violoncello and piano soloists is excellent – for example when the orchestra quits the accompaniment and slowly models into the foreground.”
