Gabriel Fauré: Thème Et Variations Op.73

Books | Piano

Catalogue No: EP7956
Composer: Gabriel Fauré
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Nowhere in Fauré's output are the polemics about tempo and metronome markings so pronounced as in this extended and relatively neglected piece. Howat is a passionate advocate of the 'Thème et variations' and believes that a cogent reappraisal of the work's tempo relationships instantly makes the work much more accessible and structurally coherent. The peerless scholarship of this edition is further amplified by corrections, performing options and interpretative advice given by Fauré to the pianists José Iturbi, Robert Casadesus, Ricardo Viñes, Marguerite Long and Vlado Perlemuter.
