Notes & Reviews:

Saint-Saëns's Symphony in F major 'Urbs Roma' was his prize-winning entry to a competition organized by the Bordeaux Société Ste Cécile, but the work remained unpublished in the composer's lifetime. This early work is notable for a masterly final movement which, unusually, comprises a theme and variations. The symphonic poem La Jeunesse d'Hercule is a portrayal of the conflict between pleasure and duty, while the Danse macabre is amongst his most popular orchestral works. The first two volumes of this complete edition of Saint-Saëns's symphonies can be heard on Naxos 8.573138 and 8.573139.
