Online concert on the YouTube channel of the Polish Royal Opera.
The end of the nineteenth century, La Belle Époque… The heyday of French culture was especially favourable for the creators of excellent musical works such as the genius Gabriel Fauré, whose famous Pavane, Op. 50 from 1887 opens the concert program. Fauré composed this piano miniature having been inspired by the solemn nature of the court dance of Spanish origin. He could not have foreseen that the inconspicuous piece would inspire numerous arrangements for various instrumental ensembles, including a wind quintet.
