Elegie

The one Faure piece that got me started many years ago was his Elegie Opus 24, and it was this very recording with Jaqueline du Pre. Here is a beautiful LP sound version supplied by David Hertzberg’s fabulous You Tube channel.
The mixture of elegance, depth, melancholy without any sentimentality plus the specific use of harmonies, which define his style, all this makes Faure’s music so unique.
