A Year in the Life of Gabriel Fauré: A Love Story

1877 was a turbulent year for Gabriel Fauré. The music he composed during those twelve months reflects his newfound love and eventual engagement to the daughter of a prominent musician who commanded his deepest respect; but it also shows his despair at her eventual, unexplained change of heart. This program will take the listener through all the hopeful promise of youthful love, the sting of rejection and, inevitably, its resulting heartbreak, then finally to bittersweet resignation, all with some of the most gorgeous music ever composed.
