Saint-Saens - Allegro Apassionato for cello

Saint-Saens - Allegro Apassionato for cello. You can download the sheet music Saint-Saens - Allegro Apassionato for cello on this page.

Before the founding of the Société Nationale, one of the mainstays of the Paris concert scene was Jules Pasdeloup's Concerts populaires, intended to bring good music to audiences at affordable prices. It was to the principal cellist of this organization, Jules Lasserre, that Saint-Saëns dedicated his Allegro appassionato Op 43, written for cello and piano in 1873 and orchestrated in 1876. It is an uncomplicated piece in scherzo form, with a main tune that has a gypsy feel to it revealing, in one writer's words, the 'dark edges that haunt so many of his melodies'.

Being in B flat major, the Allegro appassionato, Op. 43, written at the beginning of 1875, seems like an "encore" continuing the mood of the concerto's central Allegretto. Its style shows traces of the "Romances" of that period, for horn in F Op. 36 (1874) and for flute in D minor Op. 37 (1871, transcribed for violin in 1874).
