In this concert, pianist Jean-Frédéric Neuburger, bassist Yann Dubost and Strada Quartet perform works by Fernand de la Tombelle and Gabriel Fauré. First, comes Fantaisie for Piano and String Quartet by Fernand de la Tombelle. The pianist then performs the wonderful Des Après-Midis sous les Arbres ("Afternoon beneath the trees"), which was composed while Tombelle taught harmony at the Paris Conservatoire. Next, violinists Sarah Nemtanu and Pierre Fouchenneret, violist Lise Berthaud and cellist François Salque (together making the Strada Quartet) join the pianist Jean-Frédéric Neuburger to perform the first two movements of the Quintet for piano and strings n ° 2 in C minor opus 115 by Gabriel Fauré. The sublime acoustics of Bouffes du Nord allow the quartet and the pianist to pay a sublime homage to La Tombelle and Fauré.
