The Fauré Quartet at the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus

Mahler - Hosokawa - Schumann. This was the program performed by the Fauré Quartet at Baden-Baden’s Festspielhaus on Sunday, 10 December 2017. Hosokawa’s “The Water of Lethe”, a piece the composer wrote specifically for the Quartet, was framed by Gustav Mahler’s sole chamber music composition and the final major work that Schumann produced during his “chamber music year” of 1842, the Piano Quartet in E flat major.
