Composed in 1880, Élégie was intended to be the slow movement for
a sonata. Fauré gave up the sonata project and published the piece

Berceuse in D major, Op. 16 for Cello and Piano. Originally composed in 1878-79 for violin and piano, this beautiful melody has been transcribed for the cello and provides the perfect complement for studying any of Fauré's cello works.
Composed in the 1870s, Fauré's "Après un rêve" is a beautiful, rapturous
song, which captures Faure's romantic style. This arrangement by
Wolfgang Birtel includes two versions, one at an intermediate level and
one at a more advanced level.
