Malmö Symphony Orchestra
SAINT-SAENS: SYMPHONIES VOL. 2
Inspired by Liszt, to whose memory the work is dedicated, Camille Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3 is groundbreaking in its inclusion of organ and piano. By contrast the Symphony in A, his first completed symphony, is a youthful piece, fully revealing his admiration for Mozart, while Le rouet d’Omphale, dating from the 1870s, is an impressively atmospheric tone poem.
