The Fauré Quartett was founded in Karlsruhe in 1995, the 150th anniversary of the birth of composer Gabriel Fauré. In the two decades since then, it has established itself as one of the world’s leading piano chamber ensembles and as one of the few for their instrumental combination. The Quartett has appeared in most of the world’s leading concert halls, including Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, the Berlin Philharmonie and the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. In addition to mainstream classics, the Fauré Quartett is devoted to discovering new and unusual repertory. Their most recent CD includes music by Richard Strauss and Mahler. Their visionary, experimental approach has attracted considerable attention, as for example in their collaborations with artists like Rufus Wainwright and Sven Helbig and appearances in clubs like Le Poisson Rouge in New York. Fanfare magazine identified the Fauré Quartett as ‘musicians who play with a great deal of refinement, nuance, and silkiness of tone’. 5th LMMC performance.

C’est en 1995, lors du 150e anniversaire de naissance de Gabriel Fauré, que ce quatuor a été fondé. Les quatre musiciens se sont connus au Conservatoire de Karlsruhe, en Allemagne, où ils ont obtenu la distinction de quatuor-résident, qui n’avait plus été décernée depuis 30 ans. Premier prix au Concours International de Musique de Chambre « Parkhouse Award », le quatuor Fauré est l’invité des plus grandes scènes musicales. L’ensemble a bénéficié de l’enseignement du quatuor Alban Berg pendant quatre années consécutives, ce qui a grandement contribué à son ascension. Après un contrat passé chez Deutsche Grammophon, en 2005, le quatuor Fauré a enregistré les deux quatuors avec piano de Mozart pour célébrer le 250e anniversaire du compositeur. Des œuvres de Fauré, Dvořák et Suk ont été enregistrées chez ARS MUSICI. Les membres du quatuor donnent fréquemment des classes de maître en Allemagne, en Italie, en Norvège et aux États-Unis, et enseignent également dans des conservatoires à Londres, Berlin et Munich. 5e engagement au LMMC.

      About Author

      Founded in 1892 by a group of women amateur musicians, the LMMC embarks on its 125th season of uninterrupted musical activity. Originally all concerts were given by active members with the occasional assistance of local professionals. In 1895 the Club brought to Montreal the Belgian violinist Eugène Ysaÿe, whose recital was such a success that the Ladies increasingly engaged international artists. Horowitz, Serkin, Rubinstein, Heifetz, Milstein, Stern, Rampal, Piatigorsky, Tortelier, Yo-Yo Ma, Lehmann, Ferrier, Souzay, the Budapest, Amadeus, Juilliard Quartets, the Beaux Arts Trio, are but a sampling of those who have performed and, in many cases, made their Montreal debuts at the Club. The long list of Canadian artists includes Saucier, Chamberland, Forrester, Alarie, Donalda, Simoneau, Gould, Turini, the Orford Quartet. The LMMC is a non-profit organization, managed by a volunteer committee. Admission is open to all on a subscription or single-ticket basis.
