Episode 4

In today’s programme, Donald Macleod finds Fauré coping with the large-scale tragedy of the 1st World War and the personal tragedy of his own worsening deafness. He responded with some of his finest chamber music to date, including two great instrumental sonatas – his 2nd for violin, and 1st for cello.
