Barbara Buntrock and the Mariani Klavierquartett have published a new album. For their CD "Idée Fixe" (Vol. 1) they recorded Enescu's first Piano Quartet and Fauré's second Piano Quartet. The two quartets fit very well together - after all, Enescu was one of Fauré's pupils! Barbara Buntrock explains: "We were fascinated by these works immediately and it became clear pretty fast that we would like to combine them in a CD project."
