1881 in Music

Music reviews I’ve written for music published in 1881. So far, there’s only one.

 

1. Gabriel Faure: Impromptu No. 1 in E-flat major, Op. 25 (7/10)

I didn’t write individual reviews of these pieces, so this is one to revisit.

 

2. Gabriel Faure: Messe des pĂȘcheurs de Villerville (6/10)

The mass seems to have been somewhat forgotten and I can sort of understand why. It’s not on par with Faure’s Requiem, which he wrote later in the decade.
