Book Description

12 Mar 1997 G. Schirmer Opera Score Editions
Saint-Saens originally began work on Samson and Delilah as an oratorio until persuaded by his librettest, Ferdinand Lemaire, to write it as an opera. The work is a synthesis of Wagnerian drama and French and Italian operatic forms, containing skillful structures and eloquent melodies. As one of the brightest jewels of French opera, the work is considered ""a dream of antique purity and modern orchestral experimentation,"" which thoroughly demonstrates Saint-Saëns' compositional capabilities. This is the Schirmer edition of the Vocal Score, and is in English and the original French.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect 28 April 2009
By Gary L. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Typical of Schirmer's scores, good binding should stand up for a while, printing clear and legible. I only wish the French and English were inverted. We are performing the opera in French and with the original language under the English it is a little difficult to read.
