Symphony No.3 in C minor ('Organ')
Up 4. Highest of 4 entries for Saint-Saëns this year.
Symphony No. 3 by Saint-Saëns is probably best understood as a 'symphony with added organ', because only two of its four movements feature the instrument. It's a magnificent work, with the composer saying he was writing to his limits: 'I gave everything to it I was able to give.'
