The Piano Quartet op. 15 was an extremely successful work during the composer’s lifetime and was reissued numerous times; it was one of Fauré’s compositions that helped to advance his reputation as a composer of great chamber music.

The Piano Quartet op. 45, although not as popular in Fauré’s lifetime, has also become a standard in chamber music concerts today. This Urtext edition is based on the first edition engraved by Röder, but it also relies on Fauré’s autograph for the exact placement of dynamics and articulation.

Bärenreiter’s first ever scholarly-critical editions of Gabriel Fauré’s much loved chamber music are based on the “Complete Works of Gabriel Fauré”. All available sources have been critically examined.

  • November 05, 2013 has to be proofreading!

    so many wrong notes not only in the score but also the parts, etc. accidental and misprint. be sure you read every measure very carefully and use the scores on IMSLP for reference.
