1877 in Music

Music reviews I’ve written for music released in 1877.

1. Gabriel Faure: Ballade in F-sharp major, Op. 19 (8/10)

This ballad is one of Faure’s longest works for solo piano. It is fairly impressionistic from the era. I also believe it departs from the traditional form (though I wouldn’t know!) because it was actually a bunch of different pieces, rewritten into one piece. I like it a fair amount but I’m not sure it makes as positive impression on me as some of his later pieces.

Gabriel Faure: “Clair de lune” (???/10)
