An unclassifiable figure among his contemporaries, Gabriel Fauré created a new and wholly original style on the piano. This discreetly individual composer was inspired by the resources of the instrument to conceive music whose luminous, diaphanous sonority is always coupled with a firm transparency of texture. His extreme sensitivity in even his slightest works ‘discourages oafs, frivolous players and tourists, but speaks softly in the ear of those who deserve to hear’, as Vladimir Jankélévitch wrote.
