The music of Gabriel Fauré is at once unclassifiable and inexpressibly beautiful. One must yield to it's seductions, savor in it the charm of the unexpected. The cello is the voice of the Fauré mélodie without the words. It's mellowness conceals passion. When Xavier Phillips and Cédric Tiberghien take possession of it, it becomes sensual, incandescent, a bouquet of refined, evergreen harmonies. The Élégie and the Berceuse will never fade, nor will the two late cello sonatas, whose surging vitality is that of a young man of more than seventy.
