Faure Pavane Opus 50-Flute and Piano-Schott
Faure Pavane Opus 50-Flute and Piano-Schott The music of small forms was what the French composer Gabriel Fauré (1845–1924) focused on. In 1874, after many years spent in the ‘provinces’, the teacher of Camille Saint-Saëns took the position of organist in Paris; later he not only worked as a church musician but also as a teacher. In the summer of 1887 Fauré wrote his Pavane Op. 50, originally intended for a concert providing light entertainment, which soon gained wide popularity as an orchestral setting with and without the chorus added by Fauré. The romantic, slightly melancholy melody is a catchy tune which, thanks to the present arrangement, can now also be performed soloistically with piano accompaniment. Gabriel Fauré was a French Romantic composer, organist, pianist and also teacher. People regard him as one of the foremost French composers of his generation, not to mention his musical style influenced many 20th-century composers. He studied at the Ecole de Musique Classique et Religieuse Paris, aged 9. He is best known for his contribution to solo piano repertoire. However, he also wrote a number of pieces for orchestra, chamber, vocal and church music.
