Camille Saint-Saens, A Life
Brian Rees' biography of the French composer and organist
First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 24 × 16cm, 485pp.
Saint Saens was possibly the greatest among the many great organists of 19th-century France, and a composer of stature. He supported both Faure and Debussy, and championed innovations in symphonic and chamber music. This is the biography of a man whose life covered Beethoven to Stravinsky.
A decent copy, with some fading to the spine. The dustwrapper has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
