Without a doubt, one of the best performances of SS’ 3rd Symphony
Fremaux’s performance of the “Organ” Symphony is the only version I have ever felt was worthy of mentioning in the same breath as Charles Munch’s famous 1959 RCA recording with the Boston Symphony. What’s more, the Fremaux performance deserves its multiple releases. The interpretation displays energy, zest, excitement, and grace aplenty, with a second-movement Adagio that flows over the listener in soft, warm waves.
