The composer, pianist and organist Gabriel Urbain Fauré (b 1845 -d1924) was, perhaps, the first French composer of his contemporaries, and his musical élan charmed many Twentieth Century composers. His sympathetic and pleasing melodic language impacted the methods of structuring and teaching music with respect to the composition and progression of chords - a combination of three or more notes that blend harmoniously when sounded together.

At the end of his life he had severe hearing impairment, that rendered him deaf.

His childhood was spent with a foster-nurse, and then at nine, he studied for some eleven years the organ and choir as part of religious ceremony.

Faure was lucky to have had the opportunity to follow his courses with several outstanding French contemporary musicians, like Camille Saint-Saëns, who introduced him to the music of several celebrity composers, including Franz Liszt and Robert Schuman. Later on he travelled to Weimar where he also met Liszt and Cologne to see Richard Wagner's production: the Ring.

In this recording we have: Pelléas et Mélisande, Op. 80, Après un rêve, Op. 7, Pavane, Op. 50, Élégie, Op. 24, and Dolly, Op. 56, 6-pieces Suite for piano at 4 hands -"Berceuse", "Mi-a-ou", "Le Jardin de Dolly", "Kitty-Valse", "Tendresse", "Le Pas Espagnol" -. Composed between 1893 and 1912 -

Faure's music during this period transfuses a cauldron of love and agony, personal grief may have influenced his composition but enriched the world's musical repertoire.

Dolly suite is lovely, initially composed for piano duet in 1893-97 dedicated to Miss Helene Bardac - dolly - to whose mother Emma (later Debussy's second wife) Faure was greatly affectionate at the time.

Listen to it and enjoy.....
