Gabriel Faure's lasting influence on French music is tied to the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War - a conflict in whcih France sought to limit Prussia's bid for German unification. In an age of widespread nationalism, and with the threat of German power at their doorstep, French artists set out to establish a firm national identity of their own. It was under these circumstances that Caille Saint-Saens co-founded the Societe Nationale de Musique to promote the music of young French composers.
