Fauré composed his 5 impromptus in two distinct periods of his career, in 1881–83 and 1906–09. Inspired by Chopin's example, the brilliant early impromptus (opp. 25, 31 and 34) resemble lyrical études that seem like improvisations but are laid out in symmetrical form with a coda. in contrast, the impromptus opp. 91 and 102 are far more boldly conceived in their sonority, harmony and virtuosity. This scholarly-critical Urtext edition is edited by Jean-Pierre Bartoli, a musicologist and professor at the Sorbonne.
