Regarded as the ‘French Mendelssohn’, Camille Saint-Saens started his music studies as a pianist. Even though Saint-Saens was predicted a great career as a piano virtuoso, he pursued a career as organist and was appointed the principal organist at the Madeleine in Paris, the position he held for over 20 years. Saint-Saens was a music professor at the Ecole Niedermeyer where one of his students was Gabriel Faure. Saint-Saens was very productive and versatile composer, and his music continues to be very popular and has been performed and recorded by the world's leading musicians.
