Editorial Reviews

British organist Andrew-John Smith once again brings his compelling artistry to the service of Camille Saint-Saëns. Smith s commanding sense of architecture, breathtaking musicality and astonishing control of dynamics and nuance is thrilling. As with Volume 1, this disc provides a rare opportunity to hear Saint-Saëns s organ works played on the very instrument for which they were composed the magnificent Cavaillé-Coll at La Madeleine, Paris. Saint-Saëns was renowned for his extraordinary organ improvisations and it was said that his genius was of an indescribable splendor.

By David C. Green on December 16, 2013
Format: Audio CD
Since no one else has reviewed ANY of the Saint-Saëns organ recordings for Hyperion besides myself, I will write another one. This second installment is by all means as excellent as the first. Saint-Saëns was a top-notch organist, and his improvisations were legendary. Recorded here are the seven improvisations that form op. 150, and they are quite spectacular. Brilliant melodies, gorgeous harmonies. Andrew-John Smith is a fantastic performer, and the organ at La Madeleine in Paris is a great instrument (esp. considering this was the place that Saint-Saëns worked for many years, so it seems a logical fit). I can never find enough nice things to say about Hyperion's recording quality, so I'll just leave it at "Go and buy it".

It contains several Saint-Saens' minor works, which makes it especially interesting to the organ music collector.
Great instrument and performer.
