Camille Saint-Saëns: Symphonie N° 3 «Avec orgue» / «Orgelsymphonie»

After a memorable performance of Bruckner’s Symphony N° 8, the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and its chief conductor Mariss Jansons return to the Philharmonie Luxembourg together with the Latvian organist Iveta Apkalna. The latter is not unknown here: she recorded the first CD on the Schuke organ in 2006, and last June she gave a solo recital on that same instrument. The concert features the Concerto for Organ, Timpani and String Orchestra by Francis Poulenc, a work that combines intimacy with neo-baroque grandeur, as well as Camille Saint-Saëns’ opulent «Organ Symphony». A truly «regal» programme for the «queen among instruments», especially in combination with one of the world’s best orchestras.
