Both accomplished soloists with impressive international careers, violinist Judith Ingolfsson and pianist Vladimir Stoupel began their successful collaboration in 2006. The duo devotes themselves to the discovery and performance of uncommon repertoire. The music of French composer Gabriel Faure (1845-1924) is marked by lyrical lines and flowing harmonies. His elegant music is transparent and virtuosic. These two pieces were written more than four decades apart, and show turning points in the composers artistic life. The first sonata was the composers breakthrough hit. The success of this work unleashed an interest in his pieces across France. The second sonata is the first piece from the composers final period, when he wrote primarily chamber music.
