A Fine Assortment of Music from Saint-Saens
JohnL | Alexander, NC United States | 08/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Camille Saint-Saens is arguably the most famous French composer, and his large body of works is well-represented here. "The Swan", from the Carnival of the Animals, the most recognizable work, is nicely done. Selections include a portion of his Second Piano Concerto, and his Third Violin Concerto, two of his best works. Also featured on this disc are two other works that feature the solo violin: Havanaise, and the Intro and Rondo Capriccioso. Enjoyable works these! A fine variety of other works round out this very nice tour of the great 19th-century French composer's music. This label, Naxos, is widely acclaimed as the absolute best BUDGET classical label. However, don't let the nice price fool you. Naxos delivers fine QUALITY recordings, time after time. The major critics concur. I do also, as in my personal collection I have over 100 CDs from this excellent label. You will not be disappointed with this "Best Of" disc."
