Philippe Cassard piano; David Grimal violin; Anne Gastinel cello

Fauré and Ravel


  • Philippe Cassard piano
  • David Grimal violin
  • Anne Gastinel cello

Fauré completed his only piano trio at the age of 78, the work’s lyrical style influenced by its creator’s lifelong experience as a composer of song. The spirit of the dance is central to Ravel’s Piano Trio in A minor, no doubt energised by its composer’s headlong rush to finish the score and enlist in the French army. ‘Yes, I am working on the Trio with the sureness and lucidity of a madman,’ he wrote in August 1914.

Join three fine interpreters for this delightful Sunday Morning Coffee Concert.

  • Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924)
        • Piano Trio in D minor Op. 120
  • Maurice Ravel (1875-1937)
        • Piano Trio in A minor
