SAINT-SAENS, CAMILLE.(1835-1921). French composer and organist. APCS. (“C. St. Saens”). 1p. Oblong 12mo. (Cannes), January 18, 1917. In French with translation.

 

“Do as you intended regarding the cycle. The 18th of January! Doesn’t it bring back memories? Yours…”

 

While exciting Parisians with his spectacular organ performances, Saint-Saëns was also teaching and composing such works as the Danse Macabre and his justifiably famous Symphony No. 3. His output exceeded 300 compositions and he was among the first composers to write a motion picture score – the Assassination of the Duke of Guise in 1908.

 

Our letter was written the same year he composed Trois chœurs opus 151, a three-part work for female chorus and piano consisting of “Chansons des aiguilles,” “Salut au chevalier” and “Le sourire.”

 

Written across the verso of a black-and-white photographic postcard of Cannes. Bearing several later pencil notations. With light wear and in very good condition.
