Gabriel Faure (20th-Century Composers)

Aimed at the general reader this is a comprehensive biography of the composer Gabriel Faure. He taught at the Paris Conservatoire and became its director greatly influencing composers such as Ravel and Boulanger. His individual style is an enduring legacy.

Gabriel Faur√©: A Musical Life  

An important new biography by Jean-Michael Nectoux and the most comprehensive study so far of the composer. Tracing his life and times the book also explores his music and his adjustment to the musical language of the 20th century. Nectoux is the foremost authority on Faure and this book appears after 20 years research. He has read more than 5000 previously unpublished letters and found more than 120 manuscripts during his study of the composer.There are rare photographs from faure's lifetime.
