Concerto No. 1 in A Minor, Op.33 for cello and piano by Camille Saint-Saens

Published by Carl Fischer. Edited by Joseph Malkin

Camille Saint-Saens (1835-1921) was the preeminent French composer of his day--perhaps even of the Romantic Era. He revered form and craft, finding inspiration in the music of the past--yet was known for his melodic gift, invention, and harmonic adventurousness. He made important contributions to several forms, particularly for string-players.

Saint-Saens's Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op.33 (1872) is one of the most beloved cello concertos of the repertory and an innovative work in its own right. It is a rare concerto that is cast in a single movement, sharing melodic and motivic ideas between each of its sections. It also dispenses with an orchestral introduction, giving the cello the spotlight with an enduringly memorable melody. It is been praised for its clarity and economy of form, substantive and declamatory solo part, and its gratifying challenges. For advanced players. Includes piano and cello parts.
