The programme of chamber music works by Camille Saint-Saëns offers the opportunity to get to know the French composer as a chamber musician for various instrumental ensembles.
The Romance for flute and piano was written in 1871; the Fantasy for violin and harp was first heard in 1907. »At the moment I am concentrating my last energies on giving the rarely considered instruments the opportunity to be heard«, Saint-Saëns wrote in 1921. One sonata each for oboe, clarinet and bassoon are written in this way.

Leoš Janáček's opera »The Makropoulos Affair« from 1926 is about eternal youth, and a smaller composition was written at almost the same time: the suite for wind instruments »Mládí«, which translates as »Youth«. In his piece, the 70-year-old composer looks back on his young years with their bright and dark sides.
