  Lesson Tutor: Classical Composer Camille Saint-Saens Biography
Born in 1835 in Paris, Camille Saint-Saens was the son of a civil servant, and although I could find little to tell about either of his parents, I do know that he was extremely fond of his mother, because when she died in 1888 he contemplated suicide.
Saint Saens too had his share in that field, but he composed such a fine body of orchestral and instrumental music that he contributed in no small measure to shifting the center of gravity away from the opera house and towards the concert hall.
Camille Saint-Saens was a man of wide interests, and had a lively curiosity in many other subjects besides music.

harles Camille Saint-Saëns was born in Paris, France at the Rue du Jardin on October 9, 1935 and died after a rough trip to Algeria in Algiers near the seaside on Friday December 16, 1921 at 10:30, at the age of eighty-six.
Camille Saint-Saëns was desperately precocious composing his first piece at the age of three a "Galop" for piano.
Given Camille Saint-Saëns's mastery of the organ, it should hardly be surprising that one of his best-loved orchestral pieces is his "Symphony No. 3 in C Minor, known as the "Organ Symphony" because of the majestic use of the instrument in the finale.
