A multifaceted musician who excelled as a keyboardist, composer, conductor, teacher, and editor, Camille Saint-SaŽns was also a scholar and writer of wide-ranging interests and an equally wide-ranging traveler. It was some of those travels, in north Africa in 1896, that inspired his Fifth Piano Concerto, which includes a melody in its slow movement that Saint-SaŽns heard on a boat while crossing the Nile. (Hence the Concertoís nickname: ďEgyptian.Ē)
