Of Note for Monday, December 8:

Fusing a wide range of emotional and musical ideas, Faure's chamber works hold similar roots to well known masterworks such as the Beethoven Piano Trio in C minor, and several of Haydn's later string quartets. Much like Beethoven, Faure lost his hearing in later years and his music often reflected an unique and, at the time, unheard of styling. 

Tune in Monday to hear Faure's Piano Trio in D minor performed by the Horszowski Trio in their newest release. 

Listen to it on Of Note With Katy Henriksen​.
