schema:reviewBody""Faure's life and works are explored in the context of the creative melting pot of fin-de-siecle Paris. His relationships with such figures as Saint-Saens, Liszt, Proust and Verlaine are considered in detail and help to create a colourful portrait of this fascinating milieu. This biography, which charts Faure's long and difficult rise to fame, both illuminates his individuality and reveals his enduring legacy to French music."--BOOK JACKET."

"Faure has often been thought of as a dreamy, somewhat unworldly individual; this book, however, clearly reveals his ambition and decisiveness. Born in southern France and educated at the Ecole Niedermeyer rather than the powerful Paris Conservatoire, he struggled for years to achieve recognition from France's musical establishment, which often considered him an outsider; in his personal life he also struggled - against bouts of depression, an unsatisfactory marriage and, later, devastating deafness.""
