Biographical / Historical
Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) and Paul Dukas (1865-1935) were two of the leading French composers of their era. Both men were associated with the Paris Conservatoire; Dukas was a student and later a professor, while Fauré (who had been educated at the Ecole Niedermeyer) served as professor and then director. Dukas, who left a relatively small body of compositions, is best remembered for The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Fauré is known for his songs, piano works, chamber music, and Requiem.
