Fauré: Sonatas for Violin and Piano 

A duo of musicians begins a series of concert dedicated to the famous French composer of the end of the 19th century Gabriel Fauré, Saturday January 31st, at Christ Church Cathedral (Montréal). Violinist Christian Vachon and pianist Frédéric Lacroix will perform the two sonatas by the master of the French melody, which were composed 40 years apart. The first sonata is a youthful work, while the second is a late work, less known and more adventurous. According to Christian Vachon, it will be an opportunity for listeners to discover Fauré at two very different times of his life and creative process. “There are notable differences in the musical language, says the violinist. The first sonata is very lyrical and we find lots of enthousiasm and harmony, and the second, a later work, is high in colours.” In addition to works from the baroque to the contemporary, the two musicians will be performing Fauré’s Complete Works in several Canadian cities through 2016.
