Camille Saint-Saëns

A French composer and melodist of the Liszt school, Saint-Saëns is appreciated for the mix of Parisian wit and academic seriousness found in Carnival of the Animals and the tone painting in his famous Danse Macabre, although his work is more beautifully developed in his Concerto for Piano No. 4, Symphony No. 3 in C, and Concerto for Violin No. 3 in B, which contain harmonically advanced writing (à la César Franck) and some of his most beautiful and fluid melody lines. ~ "Blue" Gene Tyranny, Rovi
