Kathryn Stott (piano)
Between 1881 and 1904 Fauré wrote six Impromptus of which the Second Impromptu, a rippling tarantella (though not so described) in F minor, is by far the most well known. Indeed it is probably the composer’s most popular composition for the piano.

from notes by Ted Perry © 1999

Le Deuxième impromptu, une tarentelle ondoyante (bien qu’il ne soit pas décrit ainsi) en fa mineur, est de loin le plus connu des six impromptus composés par Fauré entre 1881 et 1904—et certainement sa pièce pour piano la plus populaire.

Français: Hypérion

Zwischen 1881 und 1904 schrieb Fauré sechs Impromptus, von denen das Zweite Impromptu, eine perlende Tarantella (sie ist nicht als solche benannt) in f-Moll, das bei weitem bekannteste ist. Mehr noch: Es ist vermutlich das populärste Klavierwerk des Komponisten.
