In the first of two contrasting programs featuring French music, we hear two fabulous Piano Quartets, one by Saint-Saëns and one by Fauré, interspersed with the colorful and humorous classic Carnival of the Animals. The original idea was to feature Saint-Saëns in 2021 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of his death, and although we weren’t able to do that, it seemed worthwhile to postpone it for a year given the attraction of this program. Fauré wrote two exquisite Piano Quartets, and this program concludes with the first of those two works, which is both ravishing and delicious in harmonic content, and equally rewarding for both audience and performers alike.
