Gabriel Fauré is a concert showcasing the French composer’s extraordinary works for piano, cello and flute. Fauré created one of the most sensuous and intimate worlds in music, and only players of the utmost sensitivity can reveal all its treasures. Dr Roy Howat has been living in the world of Fauré and the French masters his entire professional life, and is not only one of the world’s leading authorities on this repertoire, but a musician of profound understanding. Howat will perform and direct ANAM Musicians in repertoire that culminates in Fauré’s First Piano Quintet, one of the great masterpieces of the chamber repertoire, which Roy Howat’s new edition reveals in a very new light.

Roy Howat is internationally known as both pianist and scholar, with special expertise in French repertoire. His teachers included Vlado Perlemuter, who worked closely with Fauré and Ravel. One of the founding editors of the Paris-based Complete Debussy Edition, Roy has produced renowned editions of Debussy’s piano music, Chabrier’s piano music (Dover), and a large collection for Peters Edition of Fauré piano music, chamber music and songs (the songs co-edited with Australian pianist-scholar Emily Kilpatrick).
Roy’s other publications include two ground-breaking books, Debussy in proportion and The Art of French piano music, along with numerous chapters in other books. His repertoire includes all Fauré’s chamber music, which he has performed around the world. He is a regular visitor to Australia, where he has appeared as soloist with various of the ABC orchestras; his performances at ANAM have included solo recitals, chamber music, and Poulenc’s Double Concerto (with Timothy Young). Roy’s recordings include the piano music of Debussy, Chabrier and Fauré (including duets with Adelaide pianist Emily Kilpatrick), and various other CDs of chamber music, Fauré’s vocalises and Fauré songs. Roy is Keyboard Research Fellow at London’s Royal Academy of Music and Research Fellow at Glasgow’s Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
