Fauré – Élégie

Taneyev – Piano Quartet

Fauré’s beautiful Élégie was intended as the slow movement of a never-completed cello sonata. Perhaps Fauré realised it would be more often played if it stood alone?

Taneyev, a pupil and confidant of Tchaikovsky and teacher of Rachmaninov, was greatly respected by these Russian greats. The piano quartet is one of his best pieces – with a slow movement to die for!
