Kansas City Symphony's “Gutsy” Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony

Pictures on Silence blogger Don Clark has a new review for next week’s (6/12/15) Kansas City Symphony Saint-Saëns: Symphony No. 3 “Organ” recording:

“In addition to being uniformly excellent, the Kansas City Symphony can also be called ‘gutsy’. …This disc from Reference Recordings is a blend of the familiar and rare: an all Saint-Saëns disc featuring the less known “La Muse et le Poete”, op 132 for Violin, Cello and Orchestra combined with the popular and very frequently recorded Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso for Violin and Orchestra op. 28 and the Symphony # 3 “Organ” op 78. … Of course the renowned sonics of Reference Recordings, created by Recording Engineer Keith O. Johnson and produced by David Frost are of demonstration quality and surely the organ in the Symphony can cause some leases to be broken or at least a few knocks on the ceiling when the volume is unleashed. … an example of how state-of-the-art recording technology can realistically capture the sound, texture and deft coordination of expansive orchestral forces combined with solo instruments of vastly varying sound quality and volume.” —Don Clark, Pictures on Silence
