Fauré’s first violin sonata is one of Elena Urioste’s favourite works – lyrical and rapturous, it prompted Fauré’s teacher Saint-Saëns to declare…
“in this sonata you can find everything to tempt a gourmet… a magic floats above everything, encompassing the whole work”
Ravel’s sensuous, impressionistic string quartet is one of chamber music’s undisputed masterpieces and the Navarra Quartet has received great acclaim for its performances of the French repertoire.
