Quote from: D Minor on April 23, 2007, 05:13:08 PMYeah, I've heard that Saint-Saens had a thing for Algerian men . . . . . . ("When in Algeria . . . . ." )But on the topic of Saint-Saens MUSIC, you can see Nelson Freire perform the Second Piano Concerto on YOUTUBE:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yiqzv7hD0J4(video is in 4 parts)
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on April 23, 2007, 05:28:57 PMAlso his 2 violin sonatas. The first one, in d, is rather famous for its whirlwind, virtuosic finale. The second one is a much more traditional, lovely work. As Camille himself said, the second is far superior musically, but the public will no doubt prefer the first. Both of them are excellent.
Quote from: hautbois on April 24, 2007, 09:48:26 AMI think his cello sonatas are fascinating, and sorry for being an oboist, BUT EVERYONE MUST TRY HIS OBOE SONATA!!!! It is just so naively beautiful, everytime i play it. Howard
Quote from: D Minor on April 23, 2007, 05:08:31 PMWell, he was married for several years, and he and his wife had two children. But rumors (unsubstantiated) that he was gay / pedophilic have occasionally surfaced.Without an admission or conviction, such an allegation would be difficult to prove . . . . . .
Quote from: Lethe on July 07, 2007, 01:48:26 PM"unsubstantiated" LOL What about the well-known pederast quote directly from his mouth?

Quote from: D Minor on July 07, 2007, 05:07:41 PMI wasn't aware that folks have been writing Saint-Saëns biographies for aeons ........
Quote from: Lethe on July 07, 2007, 06:04:26 PMSomething had to have created the big bang, Saint-Saëns is as good a guess as any...
