Ευχαριστώ όλους για την όμορφη συλλογή που μοιράζονται μαζί μας.
Έρχομαι και γω να προσθέσω τον Γάλλο συνθέτη, πιανίστα και οργανίστα Saint-Saëns, (Charles) Camille που γεννήθηκε στο Παρίσι το 1835 και πέθανε στην Αλγερία το 1921 του οποίου τα έργα θα ήθελα να μοιραστώ μαζί σας. Εύχομαι να σας αρέσει.

Σε μορφή YouTube έχω βρει ελάχιστα. Η συλλογή μου είναι σε μορφή δίσκων βινιλίου και μαζεύουν σκόνη. Προσπαθώ να βρω να τα μεταφέρω σε Cd, αλλά δεν έχω το χρόνο ούτε και τον απαραίτητο εξοπλισμό.

«Saint-Saëns, (Charles) Camille (b Paris, 1835; d Algiers, 1921). Fr. composer, pianist, and organist. Showed mus. aptitude as child almost comparable with Mozart's. Gave pf. recital in Paris 1846. Entered Paris Cons. 1848, studying org. with Benoist and comp. with Halévy. Organist, Eglise Ste-Merry, Paris, 1853-7, Madeleine 1857-77. In 1852 met and became friends with Liszt, by whom he was much influenced. Wrote his first syms. c.1848 and 1850 (unpubd.) and became pf. prof. at École Niedermeyer 1861-5 (his pupils incl. Fauré and Messager). Wrote first opera 1864-5 and began work on Samson et Dalila in 1868. In 1871 was co-founder of Société Nationale de Musique, formed to encourage development of Fr. instr. sch. To this end wrote a series of excellent symphonic poems. By this time was in demand as solo pianist and organist, and was soloist at the f.p. of his 5 pf. concs. between 1865 and 1896. First visit to Eng., 1871, to play Albert Hall org. Liszt prod. Samson et Dalila at Weimar 1877, Parisian impresarios regarding the biblical subject as too serious (not prod. at the Opéra until 1892). His best sym., No.3 in C minor (the ‘Organ’) was ded. to Liszt's memory and f.p. in London, 1886. In later life Saint-Saëns travelled widely and stayed often in Algeria, some of his later works reflecting local colour. Visited USA in 1915. Last visited Eng. 1913 to conduct The Promised Land at Gloucester Fest. Wrote coronation march for Edward VII in 1902. Saint-Saëns's output was prolific and extended for most of his 86 years. Elegance of form and line, beautiful harmonies and chords were more important to him than emotional feeling or technical adventure, and his mus. has therefore been condemned for its superficiality and facility. Nevertheless these very qualities, to which may be added graceful melodic invention, have ensured the survival of a large amount of his work. It is significant that he was admired by Ravel, another emotionally undemonstrative composer. His best features are to be found in Samson et Dalila, the 3rd Sym., and the pf. concs. Hon. CVO 1902.
