The Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78, was completed by Camille Saint-Saëns in 1886 at what was probably the artistic peak of his career. It is also popularly known as the Organ Symphony, even though it is not a true symphony for organ, but simply an orchestral symphony where two sections out of four use the pipe organ. The composer inscribed it as: Symphonie No. 3 "avec orgue" (with organ).
SO/Murray/Telarc: No musical work should benefit more from an SACD recording than Saint-Saens Organ Symphony. Ormandy chooses a tempo for the first movement that is on the slow side. The second movement picks up the pace. The Adagio is sublime. I didn't realize the Philadelphia violins could sound that lush. And the organ could not sound more glorious! The sonics of this recording are demonstration class. Our local Florida Orchestra did such a wonderful job with Camille Saint Saens' Symphony No. 3 that I wanted to listen to it over and over again. You can never get tired of this recording.

Saint-Saëns: Symphony No. 3/Ormandy. The only drawback, and this almost always is the case in the Saint-Saëns Third, is the organ, which, though refreshingly recorded in the same space and time as the orchestra, sounds bright and over-reverberant, oddly lacking sufficient bass. In this respect, Charles Munch’s 1959 RCA recording still holds the palm. For the coupling Telarc has appended Michael Murray’s Encores à la française disc, which offers an interesting and compelling program of organ music ranging from Bach to Dupré. The assembled works display the full range of possibilities of this magnificent instrument, as well as the.
