Notes & Reviews:

"The Organ Concerto, recorded in St Alban's Cathedral, is successful; Peter Hurford's mastery in Bach serves him well in its more darkly baroque aspects, but he is equally idiomatic in the uninhibitedly bouncy passages."-Gramophone

BBC Music Magazine
The preparation for the slow movement here is magical but the organ sounds more soloistic that perhaps it should. Dutoit revels in Saint-Saëns's orchestration, presenting a brilliantly fast trio sounding like gossamer.
