It has long been stressed that in the nineteenth century France academically and publicly acknowledged exclusively operatic composers. Yet, did the pianist and symphonist Saint-Saëns turn to vocal arts by opportunism? From his cantatas composed for the Prix de Rome to his thirteen operas and his numerous melodies, what was his relationship to singing?
