Extremely pleased with his ambitious Fantasy for piano and orchestra, La Tombelle decided to arrange it for piano and string quintet. The result? A sextet whose Romantic and symphonic impulses are well-nigh unique. In a quite different style, Fauré too combined keyboard and strings in his piano quartets and quintets, incorporating modern touches characteristic of the ‘Belle Époque’ spirit. La Tombelle, professor at the Schola Cantorum, and Fauré, director of the Conservatoire from 1905, illustrate, each in his own way, the facets of French post-Romanticism.
