Saint-Saens: Piano Concerto No. 3 'Africa', Rhapsodie d'Auvergne; Wedding Cake Waltz

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The Third Piano Concerto has been considered the ‘Cinderella’ among Camille
Saint-Saëns’ five works in this genre, but it owes its comparative neglect to an
adventurous approach to harmony which caused unrest in the audience at its
première. Daring enough in the first movement, the search for tonality in the
second was such an extreme experience that it caused unrest in the audience
at its première. Saint-Saëns also composed for piano and orchestra in more
rhapsodic forms, exploring folk tunes and rhythms from Africa, and revealing his
playful side in the charming Wedding Cake Waltz. Volume 1 can be heard on
