Format: Audio CD
Gabriel Faure, 1845-1924, French.

"It has been described as a lullaby of death. But that is how I perceive death, like a joyful deliverance, an aspiration to the bliss of the hereafter, rather than a painful experience". (Gabriel Faure).

This Naxos CD is aimed at the beginner or occasional classical music listener and aims to provide a cross section of the entire works of Faure on a single CD of around one hour duration. It's difficult of course to achieve a satisfactory representation of a composer's lifetime achievements in such short time, but this CD does achieve its aim in that it offers an affordable introduction to Faure which may enable the listener to either pursue these works further, or simply to collect the entire Naxos `Best Of' range.

If the intention is to collect the series it will provide a good, although slightly abbreviated, library of classical music. Those requiring further listening are helped by the sleeve notes which give recommended further listening (all Naxos label CD's of course!).

It should be noted that the Naxos 2CD `Very Best Of' releases offer slightly better value than the single CD versions in this `Best Of' series.

That said, this is a good introduction to classical music for those on a careful budget.

The complete Naxos `Best Of' series (those indicated* also have `Very Best Of' releases):

Bach*, Bartok, Beethoven*, Berlioz, Bizet, Brahms, Chopin*, Debussy*, Dvorak*, Elgar*, Faure, Gershwin, Glazunov, Grieg*, Handel*, Haydn, Liszt, Lutoslawski, Mendelsshon, Mozart*, Paganini, Prokofiev, Puccini*, Rachmaninov*, Ravel*, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rossini, Saint-Saens, Schubert, Schumann, Satie*, Shostakovich*, Sibelius*, Strauss (Johann) II*, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky*, Verdi*, Vivaldi*, Wagner, Weber.

I think the previous reviewer nailed it, I found this a very good starting point to get to know Faure's music. My one complaint is that the disc seems to have been mastered at a very low volume. Neighbours have no doubt been none too pleased when I play another cd after this one without remembering to turn the volume back to a normal level.

Excellent compilation of Faure's orchestral works 11 April 2000
By John R. Blackburn Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Faure wrote and published relatively few orchestral works, but those that he did were masterpieces of Gallic charm and elegance. This CD offers many of these hard-to-find works, and it is well recorded and performed, from the jaunty Masques et Bergamasques, the serene Pavane, the magical Dolly Suite (a precursor to Debussy's own Children's Corner), the beauty of Shylock, the ethereal grace of Pelleas et Melisande and his famous Requiem. Faure, a retiscent man, is a much underated composer. His choral works, solo piano works, and many songs aptly demonstrate his genius for creating beautiful melodies that stand the test of time and touch us today. And it was Faure, more than any other man, who provided the bridge between the traditional classical styles of Chabrier and Saint-Saens (his teacher) and the French Impressionism of Debussy and Ravel (his student).

Absolutely gorgeous! 29 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an absolutely lovely compilation of Faure's music. Beautifully orchestrated! The CD has great sound, very clear and the recordings are wonderful. Without a doubt one of my new favorite CDs! All the songs are brilliant, but my favorite is Pavane; it is elegant and simple but extremely moving and a bit haunting. This CD would be a welcome addition to any classical music lover's library.

An excellent compilation of Faure's work 14 Feb. 2003
By Todd Ebert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this cd not knowing anything about Gabriel Faure's music. A local orchestra was planning to perform Masques et Bergamasques, so I picked this cd being the most inexpensive way of buying something I possibly was not going to enjoy. But nothing could be further from the truth. I love this cd! It has such a nice variation of formats: piano concerto (Ballede in F sharp major Op. 19), piano solo (Baracarolle No.1 in A minor, Op. 20), vocal (Requiem, Op. 48), and symphony (Masques et Bergamasques). The music is also well played by various artists...no complaints on the performance side. And if it is true that one becomes the thoughts and vibrations that one allows to enter his or her mind, then by listening to Faure you may find yourself becoming a bit more tender, patient, and even romantic in your ways.

Wish I had bought this sooner! 21 Jan. 2000
By S Shealy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This has GOT to be one of the most beautiful collections of music I have ever owned! I will probably buy an extra to keep 'on my person' when I travel! I have to play it at least once a day.
