Gabriel Fauré’s Piano Quartet No. 1 in C minor, Op. 15 - 3rd Movement, Adagio / for piano, violin, viola and cello.

In 1877, after wooing her for five years, Fauré had finally become engaged to Marieanne Viardot, daughter of the well-known singer Pauline Viardot. The engagement lasted for less than four months, and Marieanne broke it off, to Fauré’s considerable distress. “The critic Stephen Johnson writes that the movement gives the listener “more than a hint” of Fauré’s sadness at the events of 1877.”

Faure is just phenomenal.
