Fauré Return to List of Composers
Gabriel Fauré was born in France in 1845. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1924. Gabriel Fauré

Gabriel Fauré was a French composer and teacher, who lived from 1845 - 1924, bridging the turn into the 20th century. His music represents a transition from romanticism to modern 20th century music. He made free use of dissonance, but never abandoned tonality.

He was a pupil of Saint-Saens, and his career started as an organist at the church of St Sulpice in Paris. Later on he was appointed organist at the Madeleine Church in Paris. For most of his life he could only compose in his limited spare time, as he was busy earning his living as a teacher and organist and choir-master.  Much of his music is on a small scale, mainly chamber works, songs, and piano works. One of the most loved of his piano compositions is the Dolly Suite, and the lullaby or Berceuse from this is available for listening here.

Around 1895 he became a professor of composition at the Paris Conservatoire, where Ravel became one of his pupils. Here he wrote some longer works, including Masques et Bergamasques, which he wrote in an 18th century style as an orchestral suite.
