    Fauré is generally underplayed in recitals, for reasons that are unclear to me. His music offers many rewards for the study. His harmony is fresh and inventive, his style most unique, and the man can write haunting and plaintive melodies like nobody's business! All of this is very much...

    in evidence in the 8 Pieces Breves varying in difficulty from intermediate to advanced. Students of piano would do well to tackle any one of these that offers its own unique challenges (pedalling, sustain the melody, complicated digitization) and offers up many rewards of muscial maturation. I have PhD in theory and studied piano for over 20 years. Many thanks to my university piano prof who instilled in me a love for this wonderful music. Recommended for piano, theory and historical study. A treasure!
