Notes and Editorial Reviews

The French composer, pianist, organist, conductor and music critic Charles-Camille Saint-Saëns was one of the major figures of nineteenth-century musical life, a fact that was disputed until recently even in his home country. The recent increase in attention paid to Saint-Saëns’ oeuvre is at least in part due to the wealth of recordings that are available today. His musical language combined the formal rigor of the German tradition, from Bach to Schumann, with a deep knowledge of the music of his native country from the Baroque period onwards and the clarity, elegance and esprit that only a French composer is capable of. Not without reason, he has been described as a classicist who knew how to entertain in a stimulating fashion. Read more On the third volume of the complete recording of Saint-Saën’s piano works, Vilija Poskute and Tomas Daukantas play pieces by the composer as well as authorized and self-edited orchestral works. Many first recordings turn this volume in a true musical expedition. Read less
