G. Fauré: Sonata in A major for violin and piano Op. 13

10/21/2018 - 10/22/2018

Gabriel Fauré composed his Violin Sonata Op. 13 during a period of great joy, after announcing his engagement to Marianne, the daughter of Pauline García-Viardot (though they would never marry). The work was premiered in 1877 by the violinist Marie Tayau with Fauré himself at the piano, and consolidated his reputation as a composer. Acclaimed by Camille Saint-Saëns, who had been his teacher, it contains some of the composer’s most beautiful melodies.
