Gabriel Fauré was a French composer of the Romantic era. At a young age, Fauré's musical talents were visible. He learned piano with Camille Saint-Saëns, who introduced Franz Liszt's and Richard Wagner's music. In 1863, Fauré published his first piano composition titled Trois romances sans paroles. His gentle and soothing music shaped the course of contemporary French music.
Fauré excelled as a songwriter of immense maturity and sensibility and as a composer of chamber music. He composed over 100 songs, including "Après un rêve" (c. 1865) and "Les Roses d'Ispahan" (1884). He enriched the piano's literature with several unique and impeccably crafted compositions, possibly the most prominent and well-established, among which his 13 nocturnes, 13 barcaroles, and 5 impromptus.
