Fauré Centenary Recitals - Concert 4


In this centenary year of Fauré's death, the richness and beauty of the composer's dazzling piano music is a revelation. Both monumental and subtle, the music explored in this series reveal a refined artistry that deserves a wider hearing. Brilliant and colourful pieces by Fauré's pupil Ravel provide a refreshing contrast to the main items in these concerts.

Oslo-born David Christophersen has broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and performed an unusually wide repertoire throughout the UK. His tour with Prokofiev's War Sonatas was described by The Scotsman as 'exactly right'. Being a frequent collaborator with contemporary composers, he is including Robin Holloway's fascinating Scherzo all Ciaconna in the third recital.
