La Belle Époque 2

Event Details

Two iconic masterpieces carefully chosen by Roman River favourite Tom Poster in the second of our Summer Weekend concerts celebrating the rich treasure trove of music by French composers from the golden age of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Fauré Violin Sonata No 1 in A major
Ravel String Quartet in F major

Tom Poster piano
Elena Urioste violin
The Navarra Quartet

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.
