Berceuse in B flat major, Op 38
composer

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Berceuse, Opus 38, dates from 1871 and is dedicated to Paul Viardot, the violinist son of the celebrated singer Pauline Viardot, a close friend. A calm serene work, it has a simple, memorable melodic quality that places it close to Saint-Saëns’s best-known piece, ‘The Swan’.
