ďI like nothing better than chamber musicĒ, Saint-SaŽns once wrote to a violinist friend and, indeed, he did much to promote the genre in Paris during the second half of the 19th century. Prominent among his works for violin and piano is the technically challenging 1885 Violin Sonata No.1 which balances passion with clarity.

The Triptyque of 1912 shows his mastery of melody, rhythm and metre, and elsewhere in this first volume one finds numerous examples of his instinct for charm and characterisation.

Fanny Clamagirand is considered one of the leading violinists of her generation, and the elegance, sensitivity and authority of her performances are warmly received by critics. Her Naxos recording of the Saint-SaŽns Violin Concertos (8572037) was awarded a Choc by Classica in February 2011.

For the last several years, Fanny Clamagirand has formed a Duo with pianist Vanya Cohen, performing in numerous concerts in France and abroad.
