Fauré – Violin Sonata No. 1 Op. 13 – Allegro quasi presto – Live at Wigmore Hall


Fauré – Violin Sonata No. 1 Op. 13 – Allegro quasi presto – Live at Wigmore Hall
Some of France‘s best living musicians performed in two concerts solely works by Gabriel Fauré at London’s Wigmore Hall, formerly Bechstein Hall. Renaud Capuçon (violin) and Michel Dalberto (piano) played the Violin Sonata No. 1 Op. 13 on May 2, 2013. It was an extraordinary interpretation, so that we are proud to have the possibility to publish the “Allegro quasi presto” of this performance.
Michel Dalberto performed on a C. Bechstein grand piano D 282, that was serviced by the famous piano technician Denijs de Winter. By the way all musicians (and the C. Bechstein grand piano) had also been involved in the recording of Fauré’s complete chamber music, a set of CDs on the Virgin label that has won several prizes.
