Podcast: A final flourish.

April 6, 2018

The new Naxos edition of Saint-Saëns’ works for piano and orchestra reaches its final volume with a recording of the composer’s Piano Concertos Nos. 4 and 5, works described by soloist Romain Descharmes as “brilliant music that opens doors to a new world”. The Fourth Concerto showcases virtuosic music written by one of history’s most amazing keyboard prodigies. The Fifth was written when Saint-Saëns was aged 60 for his own jubilee concert marking the 50th anniversary of his debut appearance in Paris. It exudes a suitably youthful effervescence and houses a middle movement bursting with contrasting moods. Raymond Bisha introduces this sparkling new release.
