SAINT-SAËNS, C.: Symphonies, Vol. 3 - Symphony in F Major, "Urbs Romana" / La Jeunesse d'Hercule / Danse Macabre (Malmö Symphony, Soustrot)

Saint-Saëns’s Symphony in F major ‘Urbs Roma’ was his prizewinning entry to a competition organised by the Bordeaux Société Ste Cécile, but the work remained unpublished in the composer’s lifetime. This early work is notable for a masterly final movement which, unusually, comprises a theme and variations. The symphonic poem La Jeunesse d’Hercule is a portrayal of the conflict between pleasure and duty, while the Danse macabre is amongst his most popular orchestral works. The first two volumes of this complete edition of Saint-Saëns’s symphonies can be heard on Naxos 8.573138 and 8.573139.
