An accomplished French composer, Gabriel Faure developed a style that pushed tonality to its limits, while becoming increasingly economical. Many of Faure's shorter works became and remain popular; however, the true worth of his achievement in song, piano, and chamber music are only gradually being recognized. Faure also developed a musical idiom all his own that anticipated the procedures of impressionism. Faure was also an illustrious teacher. Among his now-famous students were Raul Enesco, Charles Koechlin, Jean Roger-Ducasse, Laparra, Florent Schmitt, Louis Aubert, and Nadia Boulanger.
