Danse Macabre and Other Works for Solo Piano
A prolific composer in every musical genre, Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921) produced a body of work characterized by high standards of form, style, and workmanship. This splendid compilation of piano music, selected and with an informative introduction by music scholar Victor Rangel-Riberiro, features a variety of the composer’s most representative compositions, all reproduced from authoritative sources.
Taking its title from the well-known and much-loved orchestral work “Danse Macabre” (presented there i the brilliant and celebrated arrangement by Granz Liszt), this collection also includes Saint-Saëns’ “Allegro appassionato,” “Album” (consisting of six pieces), “Rhapsodie d’Auvergne,” “Theme and Variations,” plus six etudes, three waltzes, and six studies for left hand alone. This comprehensive volume also includes a solo piano transcription of the legendary “Wedding Cake” (Caprice-Valse), one of Saint-Saëns’ “signature” pieces, originally for piano and orchestra.
Pianists and all students of music will cherish this durable, attractive, and modestly priced edition of enduring works.
