Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) was one of the most influential French composers, linking the end of Romanticism with the beginnings of the modern era. Fauré taught many young composers. One of the best known of these was Nadia Boulanger, who herself became a sought-after teacher who mentored many of the leading composers of the 20th century. One of those closest to her was her sister, Lili Boulanger. Another of Nadia’s students was Suzanne Bloch, daughter of her close friend Ernest Bloch. In 1916, Suzanne Bloch became acquainted with Rebecca Clarke when both entered the same competition and, out of 72 entries, tied for first place. There was speculation at the time that Rebecca Clarke was a pseudonym for Bloch himself, based on the belief that a woman could not have written such a great work.
