tag yourself as movements in classical music
  • Medieval:often ignored, shy, secretly gay, likes to stay in the same place all the time, dreams of being a monk
  • Renaissance:loves to dance, likes fancy things (but not too fancy), nobody else could pick them out in a crowd but everyone is friendly to them
  • Baroque:very particular about everything, draws immensely detailed doodles, gets super side-tracked on pointless tangents, everyone's distracted dad friend
  • Classical:very neat bedroom, makes bad puns constantly, has a 9-5 job, everyone's helpful but slightly exasperated mom friend
  • Romantic:can never make up their mind about anything, gets shivers when they go to art museums, cries a lot (and you'll know about it), sad bisexual (TM)
  • Impressionist:super gay, loves music that isn't in their native language, cries easily, just wants to have a good time
  • Early Modernist:just like Romantic but also does drugs and is afraid of but also super interested in sex
  • Serialist:angry at everything, "you don't understand my torment", probably a communist
  • Neoclassical:wants to be just like classical but has never gone to sleep before 1AM, keeps a very neat bedroom except for a single massive pile of clothes in the closet they refuse to acknowledge, occasionally steals Renaissance's hoodies
  • Total Serialist:500% angrier than serialist and proud of it, has never had fun, has probably killed someone
  • Academic Avant-Garde:has never done the same thing twice, trusts nobody else, has an on-again-off-again relationship with total serialism
  • Minimalism:loves technology, still wears Google Glass and the Apple Watch, meditates for fun, trying to learn Hindi (and horribly failing), often incomprehensible to everyone else but is actually super friendly
  • Polystylism:originator of the term "pastel grunge", wears immensely clashing outfits, steals everyone's looks, memes

Gabriel Urban Fauré (1845-1924).

Fauré's talent became clear when he was a small boy. At the age of nine, he was sent to a music college in Paris, where he was trained to be a church organist and choirmaster. Among his teachers was Camille Saint-Saëns, who became a lifelong friend.

The Élégie (Elegy)Op. 24, was written in 1880, and first published and performed in public in 1883. Originally for cello and piano, the piece was later orchestrated by Fauré.

The Heart of the Fauré Elegy is the vivid expression of the wide-ranging emotions that accompany loss; when Fauré was 34, devastated and grieving over his broken engagement to his long-time love. Tonal shifts, the use of dissonance and harmonic ambiguity, and expansive register changes on the cello give this piece tremendous emotional range and depth. 

Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.
—  Claude Debussy (French Composer 1862-1918, one of the most prominent figures associated with Impressionist music)

Achille-Claude Debussy (22 August 1862 – 25 March 1918) was a French composer. Along with Maurice Ravel, he was one of the most prominent figures associated with Impressionist music, though he himself intensely disliked the term when applied to his compositions. In France, he was made Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1903. A crucial figure in the transition to the modern era in Western music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. His music is noted for its sensory component and frequent eschewing of tonality. Debussy’s work usually reflected the activities or turbulence in his own life. In French literary circles, the style of this period was known as symbolism, a movement that directly inspired Debussy both as a composer and as an active cultural participant. [source]
