Faure’s Impromptu No.2 is a piano piece composed in 1881, only two years after his first impromptu was published. Faure dedicated this piece to Madame R*** D***, who was the mother of Faure’s pupil Marguerite Long, another female pianist, Faure composed two piano impromptus in the space of three days. Impromptu No.2, Op.31 was completed on August 10th 1891. Faure used a great amount of fantasy to compose this piece and it is an example of his well-known love for the piano and ability to write music that could be played by most piano students with ease.
