My existing Faure collection consists of the complete Nocturnes and
Bacarolles on EMI lp's with Collard, the Ballade with Bernstein/
Casadesus on the Columbia lp with their remarkable S-S 4th Concerto, a
4-hand piano Dolly Suite, and a few solo piano works, as well as the
Requiem. So the German cd will be a welcome addition.
I once asked a knowledgable French piano buff whether Faure best
expressed the French soul. He said "no", Poulenc did because Poulenc
better expressed the French sense of humour (?!!).
I love Poulenc, but Faure is almost a religious experience, even here
in Iowa ( where we suffer being downwind from Canada).
