Camille Saint-Saëns

(1835–1921)


Country: France

The French composer Camille Saint-Saëns (1835 – 1921) was active during the Romantic musical era. Some of his most well-known works include Rondo Capriccioso, the opera Samson and Delilah and The Carnival of the Animals.

Saint-Saëns's reputation as a child prodigy won him a place at the Paris Conservatoire, and thereafter he was engaged as a church organist at the important French churches of Saint-Merri and, from 1858, La Madeleine, both of which are in the French capital, Paris. A successful career as a freelance pianist and composer followed.
