Following on from their acclaimed Resonus debut the Fidelio Trio continues its exploration of the French piano trio with this impressive new recording of works by Gabriel Fauré, Ernest Chausson, and Erik Satie.
Chausson’s opulent and lyrical Op. 3 piano trio from 1881, is joined by Fauré’s only work in the genre – the heartfelt Piano Trio in D minor, Op. 120 – composed during the latter part of his life.
The album is completed with arrangements by John White of works by Erik Satie – selections from his only liturgical work, the Messe des Pauvres, and the incidental music to his own play, Le Piège de Méduse.
