Late Romantic tonal splendour and charming, witty salon music: Camille Saint-Saëns’ melancholic swan, gliding through the water, is one of the best-loved classical works. Yet the French composer’s oeuvre is much more versatile: the universal musician’s repertory ranges from delightful salon pieces and his enchanting Carnival of the Animals through passionate operas like Samson and Delilah and brilliant instrumental concertos to the famous, majestically bombastic Organ Symphony.
