Piano Trio in d minor, Op. 120, 1923

Gabriel FauréA central figure in 19th and 20th century French music, Gabriel Fauré’s life spanned an astonishing timeline of musical history particularly emphasizing the innovations of his countrymen. Berlioz was still alive in Fauré’s youth. He was friends with Saint-Saëns, Chabrier and d’Indy. As an influential academic reformer and professor of composition, Fauré would number Maurice Ravel, Florent Schmitt and Nadia Boulanger among his students. Outliving Debussy by several years, he completed his final works in the mid-1920’s thereby bridging the rise of Romanticism and the full flowering of Modernism and, arguably, through Boulanger, influencing a whole generation of young American composers studying abroad. His musical style lay somewhere in between this imponderable range. « more »
