Fauré Quartett to perform at Oxford’s Ford Center
Fauré Quartett has established itself as one of the world’s leading piano quartets within just a few years. Dirk Mommertz (piano), Erika Geldsetzer (violin), Sascha Frömbling (viola) and Konstantin Heidrich (cello) perform compositions outside the mainstream piano quartet repertoire. They are visionary in their approach and highly regarded for their experiments and discoveries; be it with collaborations with artists like Rufus Wainwright, appearances in clubs like the “Le Poisson Rouge” in New York or “Rhapsody in School,” a program to get children excited about chamber music.
The Fauré Quartett has also made highly regarded recordings with works by Mozart, Brahms, Mendelssohn and pop songs from Peter Gabriel and Steely Dan.
