Fauré and his pupils

The mélodie in the age of Fauré

Mélodie Chamber Music
The role of a composition teacher at the Conservatoire was to prepare his students for the Prix de Rome competition. In other words, Fauré played the primary role in initiating his students to writing for voice. Given that he was the undisputed master of French song, this tuition was invaluable and highly fruitful.
