Gabriel Urbain Fauré (1845 –1924)

Gabriel Urbain Fauré (1845 –1924) was a French composer, organist and teacher. He had great impact on French music and 20th-century composers. At age 9, he attended a music Institute in Paris, where he was trained to become an organist and choirmaster. He earned his living by teaching and playing organ and often had little time to compose. As a result, much of his music was composed later in his life, when he had earned some security to permit it.

Fauré is considered to bridge the Romantic era with the 20th century style, then known as Modernism.
