Fauré: Quintet for piano and strings n° 2 in C minor opus 115 - Bellom, Fouchenneret, Chilemme, Berthaud, Salque
A quintet in C minor, composed in 1921 and dedicated to the composer Paul Dukas.
Quintet No. 2 is a titan of French chamber music. Gabriel Fauré wrote the work between September 1919 and February 1921. During this time, he resigned from his position as director of the Paris Conservatoire because of his age (75) and deafness. Composed during the inter-war years, the Quintet for Piano and Strings No. 2 in C minor opus 115 is compiled of four movements: Allegro moderato, Scherzo: Allegro vivo, Andante moderato and Allegro molto. Like Ludwig van Beethoven, his deafness did not prevent him from composing great works right until the end of his life.
