In this concerto, Saint-Saëns drew on Bach’s church organ improvisations and the wild Tarantelle showing how French composers have been equally inspired by music of the church and the cabaret. From Fauré’s gorgeous setting of the Requiem Mass to plaintive Piaf, to Offenbach’s kick up your heels Can Can, we dive into the rich tapestry of la musique française.
