Saint-Saëns: Symphony No.3 Camille Saint-Saëns

£5.99

Product description

This recording of Saint-Saëns's Organ Symphony is often regarded as definitive. Dutoit's touch is unrushed, light and secular, avoiding any heavy meaningfulness. Intuitively romantic, he enlists his players' sensitivity in achieving great variety in the softer parts of the range. His cueing is highly organic, giving each new phrase scope to develop. Here Dutoit achieves what many of his colleagues never do: instead of the piece seeming like a battle between organ and orchestra, here there is a clear, dance-like elegance and superb balance. The orchestra hit the tricky polyrhythmic transitions with faultless precision.
