06:30 PM: Introduction to the concert (in German) in the Hans Huber-Saal with Benjamin Herzog and Alain Claude Sulzer

Cancelled

Camille Saint-Saëns – who also performed several times at the Stadtcasino Basel – was stricken in years when he died in 1921 at the age of 86. Behind him lies an eventful life. He already loses his father as a baby. He enters the world of music as a child prodigy. Later as an adult his two little sons die. After the death of his mother shortly after, he liquidates his apartment in Paris, gives away and sells his furniture and goes underground. He spends fifteen years in a travel fever in ship cabins and train compartments. He travels from North Africa to China, from Russia to America – and composes.

We would like to give you a small insight into Saint-Saëns' symphonic work, both well-known and less well-known, as a tribute to a great composer on the 100th anniversary of his death. Sol Gabetta will perform his two cello concertos. Two commissioned works for our percussion ensemble will provide powerful contrasts to Saint-Saëns' sound worlds.

In plain language:

The composer Camille Sanit-Saëns was already very talented as a child. He composed his first piece when he was six years old. Later he performed here at the Stadcasino.

Some of his works are not so well-known, for example his cello concertos. The cellist Sol Gabetta will play the two concertos. She lives near Basel.
