Barcarolles

In May 2017 I will record the 13 Barcarolles by Gabriel Faure for the West German Broadcast with the potential release on CD later.
Faure has been the one composer I always was so fond of that – with the exception of his chamber music – I hardly dared to go near him. Sounds weird ?  The great Svjatoslav Richter used to answer when asked why he would play so seldom Debussy: “It is too beautiful.”  The one pianist I prefer over anybody else with Faure is Swiss pianist Albert Ferber, who recorded 2 LP’s in the 1950 -ies. Here are some examples of his unique art, unmatched and unsurpassed.
