Fauré, Gabriel

Gabriel Fauré was a French composer, pianist, and organist. His most well-known pieces include his Pavane and Requiem. While Fauré's most popular and open compositions were usually his earlier ones, many of the most prestigious works in his later years were written in a more complex style, harmonically and melodically. At 9, young Gabriel was sent to Paris to train as an organist and choralist. Some years back, Saint-Saëns learned the violin, brought modern art to the college like Schumann, Liszt, and Wagner. Also, they studied piano. Saint-Saëns was involved in the success of Fauré and a lifetime relationship came into being. Fauré enjoyed a meager living from an organist and piano tutor following his graduation in 1865. 

In October 1871, under the organist Widor in Paris, he was appointed chancellor at the Église Saint-Sulpice. The two improvised on two church instruments concurrently during many services and attempted to trap one another with unexpected vital modifications. Most of the works of Fauré were first seen at the concerts of the Society. In January of 1877, at 31 years old, Fauré was very active in presenting his first violin sonata at a Société Nationale.
