Brass, Reeds and Percussion "Gabriel Fauré" (Jan. 18, 2014)

Perhaps most famous as an organist, Gabriel Fauré lived from 1845 to 1924. He was a student of Camille Saint Saens and a teacher of Maurice Ravel, Florent Schmitt, George Enescu, and Nadia Boulanger. Richard Strauss sought his advice. His music bridges the romantic period and the modern period. In 1871, he was appointed choirmaster at the Saint-Sulpice church under the composer and organist Charles-Marie Widor. During some services at the church, Widor and Fauré improvised simultaneously at the church's two organs, trying to catch each with sudden changes of key. For the January 18, 2014, edition of Brass, Reeds and Percussion, two band arrangements of music composed by Fauré will be featured.
