:

Born in Paris on October 9, 1835, Child prodigy, he studied piano with Camille-Mary Stamaty (1811-1870) who recommended him to Pierre Maleden (1801-1871) for composition. He gave his first two concerts in 1846 at the Salle Pleyel in Paris with Beethoven's Concerto in C minor and Mozart's Concerto in B 450 for which he played his own cadenza.
« Art has the right to descend into the abyss," he says, "to insinuate itself into the secret recesses of dark or desolate souls. This right is not a duty. "Art has the right to descend into the abyss. »
For him, art is first and foremost form. But he's not a formalist. He has a sense of melody, of what pleases, the element of charm is not absent from his compositions. And if the seriousness of the construction and the clarity of the discourse dominate, the emotion has its place as in the air " Mon cœur s'ouvre à ta voix " by Samson et Dalila. Saint-Saëns is not a revolutionary, but he composes symphonic poems and he is the first renowned musician to write for the nascent cinema. It will be the assassination of the Duke of Guise in 1908.
He is also an agnostic who spent half his life in a church and wrote beautiful masses.
