Click here to watch
This great cellist, Stephen Isserlis, long a champion of the music of Camille Saint-Saens, performs, with the pianist Connie Shih, a wide-ranging programme commemorating the centenary of the composer’s death at the age of 86.
In this programme, his works are complemented by those of his friends and associates, presenting a picture of musical France during his extended lifetime. In addition to Saint-Saens’ own compositions, covering his whole career, it includes works by Liszt, Faure and Reynaldo Hahn, and the irresistible Carmen Fantasy by Joseph Hollman.
