Ford Center Hosts Renowned Fauré Quartett

Faure Quartett will perform at the Ford Center Feb. 7

The Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Mississippi will host the acclaimed piano quartet The Fauré Quartett for an eclectic performance Tuesday evening (Feb. 7).
Fauré Quartett is one of the world’s leading piano quartets and is praised for its visionary approach to compositions outside of the mainstream. The group has collaborated with artists such as Rufus Wainwright and produced critically acclaimed recordings of classical works by Mozart, Brahms and Mendelssohn and pop songs from Peter Gabriel and Steely Dan.
“The Fauré Quartett is one of the world’s leading piano quartets, and we are excited to have the opportunity to bring them to the Ford Center,” said Kate Meacham, the center’s marketing director. “Our audience can expect music of the highest quality with performances of works by Mahler, Brahms and Gabriel Fauré.”
Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are $22 for balcony level, $26 for the mezzanine and Tier 2 box seat, and $30 for the orchestra/parterre levels and Tier 1 box seats. Tickets can be purchased online at https://www.fordcenter.org/ or at the UM Box Office inside the Ford Center. A 20 percent discount is available for faculty, staff and retirees.
The group features Dirk Mommertz on piano, Erika Geldsetzer on violin, Sascha Frömbling on viola and Konstantin Heidrich on cello. The musicians met in 1995 during their time studying in Karlsruhe, Germany, and signed a contract in 2006 with Deutsche Grammophon.
The quartet has since toured the world, playing at venues such as Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Berlin Philharmony and Wigmore Hall London.
