Notes & Reviews:

These two rarely coupled French Romantic Symphonies both receive outstanding performances here. Haitink and the Concertgebouw made some of their finest recordings during this period as these exceptionally lush, florid readings of Bizet's only Symphony and orchestral transcription of his celebrated four-hand piano piece Jeux D'Enfant's (Children's Games) attest. Edo de Waart and his San Francisco forces as well deliver a spectacular performance of Saint-Saens grand 3rd Symphony with Organ soloist Jean Guillou (yes, the same Jean Guillou who years later would go on to record those legendary Organ recordings for Dorian). All here was originally recorded for Philips- and the sound is as remarkably impressive now as it was back then!
