Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) was a French composer, pianist, organist and teacher. His musical style, linking Romanticism and the Modernism had influenced many composers of 20th century. Despite his lack of time while holding a position as director of the Paris Conservatoire (1905-1920) where he made some important reforms, Fauré managed to escape Paris and continued to compose.
By 1920s he was considered as one of the leading French composers.
