Notes & Reviews:

The Complete Chamber Music for Winds demonstrates that Saint-Saens is the origin of the world-famous "French winds tradition." In a century mostly inspired by German Romantic orchestral pieces, Saint-Saens considered the wind instruments on the same level with the violin and piano. In the twilight of his life, at age 85, Saint-Saens came back to wind sonatas. Although being very classical, the three 1921 sonatas announce the "Groupe des Six" neo-classicism, and particularly Poulenc. In that respect, even at the very end of his life, Saint-Saens stands as an innovator.
