Gabriel Fauré: Piano Quartet No. 2 in G Minor
César Franck: Sonata for Violin and Piano in A Major

The sonata for violin and piano by César Franck was a wedding gift for the young violin virtuoso Eugène Ysaÿe. Though Franck was praised as an organ composer on a par even with Bach, his A Major Sonata became his best-known work and still holds a firm place in the staple chamber repertoire.
