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 Colon 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’.
