Gabriel Faure

April 19, 2010

Two Performances by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

In 1923, composer Gabriel Faure was an old man who had seen much of his familiar world crumble away. The Romantic music of his youth had given way to a more angular, jarring, atonal style. He had just come through the devastation of World War I. And he was losing his hearing. But even so, he mustered his energy and wrote a gorgeous, heartbreaking trio for clarinet, cello, and piano. In today's show, we'll visit a New York performance by members of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Plus, CMSLC musicians in a Mozart masterpiece for winds.
