Gabriel; Faur� (1845-1924) wrote his Pavane, Op. 50, as a composition for orchestra and optional chorus in 1887. The piece is scored for strings and one pairs of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, and horns. Originally the work was written for orchestral alone, and was to be played at a series of light summer concerts conducted by Jules Danbe. Later, when Faur� dedicated the work to his patron, Countess �lisabeth Greffulhe, he added choral lyrics based on some trivial verses on the romantic helplessness of man, which had been contributed by the Countess' cousin, the symbolist poet Marie Joseph Robert Anatole, Comte de Montesquiou-Fozensac (1855-1921). In performance, the lyics are most often omitted nowadays. I have arranged the work here for string quartet. For easier playability, I have transposed the key to g minor (from its original key of f# minor)
