Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) was a universally admired composer, organist, pianist, and teacher. Modern audiences now know him as one of the most influential composers of his entire generation, his profoundly elegant music creating a bridge between the end of Romanticism and our own modern era!
Music by Fauré, Clarke, Franck, Bloch, Lili Boulanger, and Nadia Boulanger. This must-see concert highlights the joyous and sublime influences that Fauré’s music had on his friends, students, and other composers—an influence that continues to this day!
