Format: Audio CD
This is a stunning CD. The soloists are of the highest calibre imaginable, all are exceptionally skilled- from John Ogdon and Barbara Lucas to Tortelier they give full vent to their talents in these vivid, characterful pieces of music. The organ symphony is full-bodied and very expressive, an excellent rendition. In addition there is the "Danse macabre" and "Bacchanale" from the opera Samson and Delilah.
This is quite a bargain for all the high standard of music you get : hard to beat.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD contains five pieces of music by Saint-Saëns played by Louis Frémaux and the CBSO. It starts with 'Danse Macabre' followed by 'The Carnival Of The Animals' with John Ogdon on piano then 'Allegro appassionato' with Paul Tortelier on cello followed by the superb Organ Symphony No.3 with Christopher Robinson as the soloist. The CD finishes with Bacchanale from Samson and Delilah. Many of the pieces will be instantly recognisable including the theme from 'Babe' which is from the fourth movement of Symphony No.3. The CD is excellent value with over 75 minutes of fine music and is highly recommended.

A brilliant CD with stunning music. The CD contains only music and no horrible narration over the top of the beautiful songs. An excellent buy!

I was looking for this work and found it was available as a download from Amazon. The download was trouble free and I think the quality of the music is excellent. The fact that it also includes Carnival of the Animals is a bonus.

I only bought this CD to obtain a piece of music that's been a favourite of mine since childhood - "Danse Macabre", but I discovered so much more to enjoy here, so many familiar sounding, beautiful pieces of music that a classical music novice like myself could never put a name to. A great album that fills my living room with the most wonderfully soothing music that I love to unwind with.
The sleeve insert features a brief biography of the composer.

Especially if you like the piano on the Carnival of Animals, I bought it for my beloved Saint-Saens BIG organ symphony, great thank you. Bit of a nuisance the latter is at the end of the recording.
