Student of Camille Saint-Saëns and teacher to Maurice Ravel, Gabriel Fauré lived and helped drive one of the most fascinating eras in music. He was choir master at Saint-Sulpice when Widor was organist, and part of an association which included Bizet, Franck, Lalo and Massenet. While Germany had Brahms and Wagner vying for attention, Paris countered with a more fragrant music; and Fauré was at its epicenter. Join Bill McGlaughlin for Gabriel Fauré  on Exploring Music, weeknights at 7:00 PM.
