Camille Saint Saens

Camille Saint Saens was admired by Liszt  

and Gounod and taught Faure - working 

in Paris as a teacher and an organist at the 

Madeline. We have made our selection from his 

most famous shorter works. Sadly he seems to 

have felt that Le carnaval des animaux was too 

frivolous for a serious composer and restricted 

it's performance during his life time. The 

original orchestration has been greatly 

simplified with steel drums standing in for the 

strings and the pianos but the use of the 

marimba proved particularly effective in the 

Fossils piece.
