Editorial Reviews

Celebrated as one of the most successful and gifted composers of his day, Saint-Saens wrote music for woodwind instruments throughout his long career. This recording presents music from his early days as the bright young thing on the Parisian music scene

This new Naxos disc featuring the members of the Canadian Arts Centre Wind Quintet offers a fresh, clean and very pleasant look at the wind music of Camille Saint-Saens. The booklet notes, by Matthew Swann, correctly point out that Saint-Saens was writing very spare, but lush, Romantic music at the same time that his contemporaries, from Debussy to Schoenberg, were to trying some bold, new things. Saint-Saens stuck to his ideology and his belief that melody and harmony, in their traditional guises, still had (and have) plenty to offer the composer. The member of the CAC Wind Quintet perform separately and in small groupings on this disc and accompanied with sensitivity by pianist Stephane Lemelin. The first work on the disc is a charming rarity, the "Caprice on Danish and Russian Airs" for flute, oboe, clarinet and piano. This is a very nice, short, foray into simple melodies given plain, but pretty, settings and the result is quite enjoyable. Clarinetist, Kimball Sykes, does a very fine job on the "Clarinet Sonata in Eb". This is one of the staples of the performing clarinetist repertory, and has been recorded and performed hundreds of times. Compliments to Mr. Sykes for not playing the finale needlessly fast (as sometimes happens) and to Mr. Lemelin for given the Lento the weight and the ponderous, strangely disconnected feel that it sometimes lacks. The "Oboe Sonata in D" is a well known piece among oboists and is almost 'Baroque' in its character. Charles Hamann plays it with charm and lilt. On to the "Bassoon Sonata in G", not quite as well known as the clarinet and oboe. The piece opens with a beautiful, then spritely, tone and the last movement does sound oddly plaintive and reflective before a final fluorish.Read more ›

Saint-Saëns believed his chamber works were some of the most important pieces he composed. The pieces on this disc were all composed at important times in Saint-Saëns' life, creating an contrasting (and interesting) listening experience. The Tarantella for Flute, Clarinet and Piano, the earliest work on the CD, was written when the composer was 22, and was inspired by a recent trip to Italy. Youthful and energetically melodic.

The Caprice on Danish and Russian Airs for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Piano and the Romance (arranged for horn and piano) were both written at the height of Saint-Saëns' career, during the time he wrote the Symphony No. 3 'Organ' and the Carnival of the Animals. These two pieces are more virtuosic; the first one is colorful, and each instrument is given the spotlight throughout. The second is a transcription of a work originally composed for cello and piano. Excellent listening, especially for horn players.

The other three works on the CD, all pieces for wind instrument and piano, were composed in the last year of Saint-Saëns' life. Although his music was considered in 1921 to be mostly outdated in his native France, these are charming works nonetheless, and Saint-Saens' creativity is still evident. Most of the works on this disc have more definitive performances recorded elsewhere, but this is still a wonderful and inexpensive collection.

This is an hour full of fun. The chamber pieces on this CD reflect Saint Saens clever combination of Gallic charm, inventiveness, and a nice turn of phrase. Play it during a warm spring evening with a nice breeze and a bottle of Gigondas. There is nothing too profound about these pieces...Saint Saens chamber music isn't Faure or Ravel. But there is an attractive variety here, and full of good humor. Recommended for those who enjoy light French chamber music.
