Camille Saint-Saëns

October 9, 1835 - December 16, 1921
born in Paris, France, composed during the Romantic period
Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921) was a French composer, conductor, organist, and pianist of the Romantic era, famous for being a child prodigy, a virtuoso performer and sight-reader, and a polymath with a lifelong interest in mathematics and the sciences. Saint-Saëns composed in all the forms of his day, achieving great success with his Symphony No. 3, "Organ"; Carnival of the Animals; Danse Macabre; and many other works that have remained popular today. Saint-Saëns was a brilliant organist who held the eminent post at the Église de la Madeleine, where he impressed Liszt. Saint-Saëns died in his adopted country, Algeria. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

I am moved. By this music. I loved the red violin and found that Joshua Bell did all the music...I can't express what the sound of a violin means to me...I just know that this is true magic.
