To read

The pianist, organist and composer Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921) was one of the greatest names in French music in the second half of the 19th century. He was the author of twelve operas, numerous oratorios and choral compositions, five piano concertos and two for cello, not to mention an important catalogue of chamber music and a few "unclassifiable" works such as the little jewel Le Carnaval des animaux. Tonight, Dominique de Williencourt and his friends give us a rich overview of the most emblematic pieces in his repertoire (Samson's Bacchanal, Cello Concerto, Le Carnaval des animaux, etc.). A friend of César Franck, Lalo, Fauré, celebrated during his lifetime in the four corners of the world (he was without doubt the composer who at that time made the greatest number of journeys and gave the greatest number of concerts abroad), he embodied a golden age of the French repertoire at the turn of the 20th century before the next generation, that of Ravel and Debussy, came in turn to write another major page in the history of music.
