New album out now!
Bridging the end of Romanticism and the beginnings or Modernism, Gabriel Fauré is considered to be one of the most important French composers of the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Jane and Jan perform this collection of Fauré’s works for violin and piano on period instruments: an Érard piano and a violin by Guarneri, recreating the composers sound world.
