And the rewards come at the end of the race....

Gabriel Faure spent most of his youth with caretakers or teachers. Taught the ancient art of church music he seemed to have a modest life planned out when his friend Saint-Saens suggested that try composing some music. The Piano has explored the first two-thirds of Faure's life and this Sunday the last and fulfilling years from the beginning of the twentieth century to the composer's death in 1924. If this musician "lived fast and died young" the world would have missed much!

Hear the Piano this Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC and KTXI.
