Camille Saint-Saëns: Sonata for Violoncello and Piano D major

Instrumental Work | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Composer Camille Saint-Saëns
Editor Denis Herlin
Publisher Bärenreiter-Verlag
Instrumentation Cello and Piano

The French composer Camille Saint-Saëns endowed the music world with a multitude of masterpieces for violoncello including concertos, sonatas and miniatures such as The Swan and the Allegro appassionato Op.43.

This first publication of the Sonata in D major is based on Bärenreiter’s Camille Saint-Saëns Œuvres instrumentales complètes. Although we know from correspondence that two complete autographs existed, only an incomplete autograph source containing the 1st movement and part of the 2nd movement, which breaks off, have come down to us. In his final work for violoncello Saint-Saëns juxtaposes highly rhythmical episodes with more poetic ones. These contrasts are reinforced by bold shifts of harmonic colouring and a highly inventive thematic development.

These movements are destined to become standards for cellists.
