Gabriel Faure - Piano quintet 2

Faure (1845-1924) was a French composer, who in spite of his capabilities was overshadowed by Debussy and Ravel. His Requiem, an absolute masterpiece, remains immensely popular, but much of his other works deserves to be heard as well, in particular his beautiful chamber music. An example is his second piano quintet in C minor, Op. 115 from 1919. Relevant links below.
