Symphony No.3 in C minor ('Organ')
Camille Saint-Saëns

This epic symphonic work falls to its lowest-ever position

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.'
