William Dowdall (flute), Ivan Podyomov (oboe) and others in Poulenc: Sextet for piano and winds, Op 100. Plus Faure: Piano Quartet No 1 in C minor, Op 15.
West Cork Chamber Music Festival 2012 (1/4)
Sean Rafferty introduces the first of four programmes from Bantry, the picturesque town on the south west tip of Ireland, as it plays host to an array of international musicians during the first week of July. The venues are the Library at the historic Bantry House and St Brendan's Church in the centre of the town.
Today Sean introduces music by Poulenc and Fauré. Poulenc had a wonderful sense of how to write for wind instruments - he composed this sometimes tongue-in-cheek and other times sentimental work in 1939. Fauré's Piano Quartet Quartet No.1 in C minor was composed between 1876 and 1883. It is one of Fauré's masterpieces - finely crafted, with more than a hint of Parisian elegance..
