The 100th anniversary of Gabriel Fauré's death in 1924 has brought various worthwhile releases, some of them delving into lesser-known repertory that is most welcome. Fauré mastered the art of handling the solo cello arguably better than any other composer, writing its lines into dense counterpoint that blooms unexpectedly into melody, and two top chamber musicians do his complete cello works justice here. The program is compelling, with the two cello sonatas, thorny and dense, framing shorter works that are limpid but not simple. The Elegy in C minor, Op. 24, is heard often enough, but some of the others, like the Sicilienne, Op. 78, or the flitting Papillon, Op. 77, are delightful finds. The performers are equal to the considerable technical demands of the cello sonatas, even the incredibly gnarly first movement of the Cello Sonata No. 2 in G minor, Op. 117, and they draw nice contrasts with the just slightly more relaxed slow movements. The sound from the Salle de L'esplanade at the Metz Arsenal is another draw on an unusually satisfying chamber music release.
