Saint-Saëns: Africa & other orchestral works

One of a pair of distinctive Saint-Saëns recordings, this album made with the London Philharmonic Orchestra features several rarely heard works as well as the premiere recording of Saint-Saëns’s own arrangement for tenor and orchestra of his iconic Danse macabre—origninally a song for voice and piano to a poem Henri Cazalis before its expansion into the celebrated tone poem.
