Saint-Saëns, Camille – About Le Timbre d'argent (1911-1914)

Date

Description

On two occasions, Camille Saint-Saëns explained the genesis and artistic aspirations of an opera that was particularly close to his heart. The article of May 1911 and the programme note of January 1914 are especially enlightening.
