The sheer attractiveness of Saint-Saëns’s music has ensured its
immortality in the canon of French romantic composers. Spanning
almost four decades, his five piano concertos vary widely in
character but offer some of his most exciting if unorthodox creations,
and represent an important evolutionary phase in the French piano
concerto. The Piano Concerto No. 1 in D major, widely considered
the first by a major French composer, is a youthful and exuberant
piece, and the virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor is one of
Saint-Saëns’s most popular and frequently performed works in any
genre. Winner of the Dublin International Piano Competition 2006,
Romain Descharmes has established himself as one of the most
promising French pianists of his generation, and his recordings of French piano music have won
universal praise from leading publications. This year, he joins the Malmö Symphony Orchestra
and Marc Soustrot to record Saint-Saëns’ complete piano concertos. Last year, the Malmo SO and Soustrot recorded and released Saint-Saëns’ complete symphonies on the Naxos label to critical acclaim, including an ICMA nomination and a Supersonic Pizzicato award.
