SAINT-SAENS: Symphony No 3 and Tableaux Symphoniques

Saint-Saens: Symphony No 3, Tableaux Symphoniques

Paul Jacobs, Utah Symphony, Thierry Fischer

Hyperion CDA 68201 @ £14.25 plus P&P

Gramophone “Fischer leads a superb, thoroughly enjoyable reading of Saint-Saëns’s Organ Symphony…And although the three tableaux drawn from incidental music to Eugène Brieux’s play La foi are a roughly sewn stylistic hotchpotch full of dull as well as striking passages, Fischer seems to believe in every note.”

The Arts Desk “The Organ Symphony gets off to a splendid start, the orchestra’s instinctive muscularity tempered by Fischer’s engaging Gallic fluidity.”

About the recording ….. The prospect of a little-known Saint-Saëns orchestral work might not set the heart racing, but just wait until you hear ‘La foi’. Ample amends for a century’s unaccountable neglect are made with this magnificent new recording—so much more than a prelude to the ‘organ’ symphony.
