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.
