Once described as the French Mendelssohn , Saint-Saëns was a talented and precocious child, with interests by no means confined to music. As a child he had lessons with Stamaty and Boëly, and made his debut as a pianist at the age of ten. He entered the Paris Conservatoire in 1848, where he was taught by Halévy. His extraordinary gifts won him the admiration of Gounod, Rossini, Berlioz and especially Liszt, who described him as the world?s greatest organist. He wrote on various musical, scientific and historical subjects, and tried to revive interest in older music, particularly that of J. S. Bach, Handel and Rameau. In 1871 he founded, together with Romain Bussine, the Société Nationale de Musique to revive the artistic and cultural value of French music.

This unlikely pairing of national sources is the result of the marriage of the Czar of Russia to a Danish princess, and was dedicated to the Czarina. It is a twelve-minute fantasy for flute, oboe, clarinet, and piano. It was composed in 1887, by which time the royal couple had been married for some years.

It is in four brief movements. In the opening part, all the woodwind instruments are given equal parts, participating in dialogues with each other. The second movement features the flute and soloist. The third has the oboe in the spotlight. The final movement is a lively Allegro vivace with solo passages for all the instruments, especially the clarinet.
