Daishin Kashimoto, Lise Berthaud, François Salque, and Eric Le Sage play Fauré's Piano Quartet No. 2
The Great Romantics: Live Concerts at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark
Enjoy another glorious evening of chamber music at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art outside of Copenhagen, Denmark! The museum's concert hall has the perfect acoustic setup for a dynamic and soulful work like Fauré's Piano Quartet No. 2 in G Minor, full of sweeping melodic gestures and ravishingly beautiful motifs.
The French masterwork—described by Aaron Copland as "a long sigh of infinite tenderness, a long moment of quiet melancholy and nostalgic charm"—benefits from the careful reading and deeply felt interpretation of four internationally renowned artists with ample chamber experience: French pianist Eric Le Sage, violist Lise Berthaud, and cellist François Salque, plus Japanese violinist Daishin Kashimoto, chosen as concertmaster of the Berliner Philharmoniker shortly after this concert was recorded.
