Gabriel Fauré in 1905

Reviews of Gabriel Fauré’s Piano Quintet No. 2 at its premiere in Paris in 1921 were effusive. Critics noted loud cheers of the audience and called the piece sublime and “of incomparable nobility.” In 1924 Aaron Copland called the Quintet Fauré’s career masterwork. He said, “In profundity it recalls Bach; in grace, Mozart.” Fauré’s sublime Piano Quintet No. 2 is today’s Midday Masterpiece.
