Following the enthusiastic reception of his first Violin Sonata (HN 980); it was clear to Fauré that he would continue to write chamber music. In 1880 he wrote a little piece for cello and piano that was intended as the slow movement for a sonata. However; Fauré gave up the sonata project; instead publishing the piece under the title “Élégie.” It was so successful that Fauré was urged by the publisher to write further pieces. The conductor Édouard Colonne commissioned a version of the “Élégie” for orchestra in 1895; which was premièred two years later. As usual; this Henle Urtext edition contains both a marked and an unmarked solo part.
