Ives Collective Fall Concerts

Presented by Ives Collective

Artists in Ives Collective Fall Concert Series

When pianist Keisuke Nakagoshi told us how eager he was to play the second Fauré Piano Quintet we were all in. Late Fauré is not programmed nearly as often as his early, more extroverted pieces, but Susan and I have grown to love his late style.  We’ve never played the second quintet, but the whole idea behind the Ives Collective is to tread new ground with inspired colleagues. When we saw that this was Faure’s Op.115 we thought programming it with Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet, also Op.115, made a perfect pairing.  Both are late-in-life pieces when both composers were at the height of their powers.
