Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Klavier) Camille Saint-Saëns – ‘Organ’ Symphony No. 3 (Louis Fremaux)

front-small-boxset
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.

Composer: Camille Saint-Saëns
Organist: Christopher Robinson
Orchestra: City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
Conductor: Louis Fremaux
