Camille Saint-Saëns

Camille Saint-Saëns showed all characteristics of a musical prodigy: he started playing the piano, when he was three years of age and before he was ten (when he made his formal début at the Salle Pleyel in Paris) he had recieved composition lessons and instruction on the organ. His long life was musically very successful, not only as piano vituoso, but also as composer.

Saint Saëns composed his Feuillet d’Album [Album Leaflet] for piano four hands op. 81 in November 1887 and dedicated the piece to the young pianist Rachel Léon, whose parents were friends of his.

The piece was published in its present form one year later, in April 1888, with the name of  Paul Taffanel (1844-1908), the flautist and leader of the Société des Instruments à vent, on the title page as the arranger.
