Inspired by Liszt, to whose memory the work is dedicated, Camille Saint-SaŽnsí Symphony No.3 is ground-breaking in its inclusion of organ and piano. For the composer this represented Ďthe progress made in modern instrumentationí and the result is a work both spectacular and grandiose.

By contrast, the Symphony in A, his first completed symphony, is a youthful piece, fully revealing his admiration for Mozart, whilst Le rouet díOmphale, dating from the 1870s, is an impressively atmospheric tone poem.
