With Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921), French post-romantic music took shape. A gifted student, he played his first concert at the age of eleven and attended organ, composition and harmony classes at the Paris Conservatoire. It was at the church of La Madeleine, which he attended from 1858 to 1877, that he acquired a reputation as a master of improvisation. Saint-Saëns is also one of the founders of the Société Nationale de Musique to encourage young composers of the time. An eternal traveller, with a clear preference for North Africa, he embarked on a concert tour of South America in 1916, at the age of 81! He died in Algiers in the winter of 1921.
This new volume of the horizons collection offers you the opportunity to rediscover the life and work of a great name in French music through an illustrated synthesis.
