This final instalment in this complete recording of Gabriel Fauré's chamber music features his compositions for violin and piano. Eric Le Sage and Daishin Kashimoto, concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, give us a particularly convincing and moving interpretation of these intimist works, thanks to a complicity polished in the course of numerous collaborations in concert.
Gabriel Fauré was 30 when he began his first violin sonata in the summer of 1875. Not until four decades later, when he was director of the Paris Conservatoire, would he get round to a second sonata. More than an anthological disc, the present volume paints the portrait of a life, bearing witness to the change in civilization between the waning 19th century and the coming upheavals of the 20th.
This last volume brings to a close a complete recording of reference, based on Eric Le Sage's capacity for federating first-rank artists around him. This original approach was hailed by the international critics for his first complete recording, devoted to Schumann.
...Éric Le Sage partners Daishin Kashimoto, first concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic, in Fauré’s two Violin Sonatas. Composed forty years apart, the op. 13 is full of youthful exuberance, although the composer was thirty-five when he composed it. The op.108 is a harder nut to crack, and hasn’t had the popular take-up of its predecessor. It was Jascha Heifetz who helped put the earlier sonata on the map, and he set down two commercial recordings of it, both suave and intensely nuanced. Kashimoto has a rich warm and rounded tone, with immaculate intonation. This, together with his polish, refinement and attention to detail, will guarantee listeners are not disappointed. Le Sage is a sensitive partner, and the way they breathe and shape the long lines, makes this an astute pairing. The four short pieces provide pleasing fillers... --Stephen Greenbank, MusicWeb International
