An Evening with Fauré

Of an often personal nature, Fauré’s music sets itself apart by demonstrating a profound sensitivity bolstered by sophisticated harmonic writing, and it charms through its fluid melodies and diversity of expression. Featured in the Tribute to Fauré series, soloists from the OSM and pianist François Zeitouni invite you to explore the unique world of this composer whose death occurred 100 years ago.

In collaboration with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal
