This highly esteemed 1976 recording of Saint-Saens ‘Organ' Symphony remains one of the finest available. Daniel Barenboim takes a joyous celebratory approach to this massive work, achieving an overall warmth and immediacy few conductors have matched before or since. Organist Gaston Litaize is clearly equally inspired, delivering a rousing extraordinarily memorable finale.

Daniel Barenboim

Daniel Barenboim

From his first concert as a gifted seven-year old piano prodigy in Argentina, to his recent incarnation as the founder of the inspirational and life-changing West Eastern Divan Orchestra, he's defied expectations and broken barriers.

Orchestre de Paris

Orchestre de Paris

Arguably France's flagship orchestra, the Orchestre de Paris was founded in 1967 as a worthy successor to the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire, the earliest French symphony orchestra, and has its permanent residence at the Salle Pleyel.

‘There is no one quite like Daniel Barenboim today in the music world' The New York Times

‘The Parisian orchestra, with its characteristic magnificent sound, responded to each gesture with dramatic tension that helped bring out the lyricism and the wonderful biting sonority' Sonorama

'I'm pleased to say the organ doesn't disappoint here either, the instrument's first entry as full and warm as one could wish for. Anyone who's heard this work in the concert hall will know that balances are problematic; there, and on record, the organ usually swamps the orchestra, but the DG engineers really got it right with this one... Barenboim's tempi are generally well judged and the Chicagoans play well for him. Those plucked strings are tautly done, and there's a surging lyricism' MusicWeb International
