The combination of spectacular sound and dynamic performances make this collection of Saint-Saens tone poems an unbeatable combination. Each performance of the more familiar pieces to me, Danse Macabre, Bacchanale, the French Military March, and Phaeton are as good as I've ever heard. Maybe Bernstein / NYP and Jean-Pierre Jacquilat / Orchestra of Paris have equally compelling performances of Danse Macabre but they lag sonically. I'm still partial to Ormandy in the Bacchanale but Jarvi and the RSNO aren't going to take a back seat to them. If you are at all interested in this music of Saint-Saens do not hesitate to acquire this CD. If you have an SACD capable player with a good speakers you will be richly rewarded. Although I have not listened to the CD portion of this hybrid I have no reason to doubt that it will still sound great on any good system. Chandos is to be commended and rewarded for making these performances available in hybrid SACD.

Format: Audio CD
This "Chandos" SACD is quite an intriguing offer:
It contains 10 pieces by Saint-Saens, of which some are well known (Bacchanale from Samson & Dalilah, Route d'Omphale, Dance Macabre, French military march), and six other pieces less frequently heard, of which "young Hercules" is the longest (14 minuets).

The Scottish national Orchestra under the baton of maestro Jarvi exhibit with these pieces flexibility, beauty of tone, togetherness and excitement which does not fail to 'rock and swing' at the right passages, and does not fail to put the listener in a more ponderous mood in some of the more 'dreamy-romantic' moments.

The SACD (multichannel) is of a demonstration quality with energy bursts interwoven with sweet pianissimo and crystal-clear tones.
The recording was made in September 2011 at the Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow.
Looks like Chandos is ready to fly high along with Telarc, Bis, and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra label.
It surely leaves the likes of Pentatone, Marinsky Orchestra label, and other SACD imposters deep in the dust.

A very Recommendable this Chandos is!

I have been listening to Neeme Jarvi since the Telarc SACD years. He sounds much better now and the Chandos SACD sound is the highest quality. I also own the SACD Chabrier piece with Jarvi on Chandos. They are both worth buying. I am only listening to the Super Audio layer. Be prepared to be impressed by both the performance and the very excellent Chandos technical achievement. The dynamics are clear and real. This is a real treat! Hehe. I love it.
