Some pieces have a nickname for a reason and when the Royal Festival Hall organ raises the roof at the end of Saint-Saëns’ heaven-storming 'Organ' Symphony, the reason for this one will become pretty obvious.
Saint-Saëns’ Third is part of a noble Franco-Belgian organ tradition, and guest conductor Dirk Brossé has paired it with the equally thrilling Symphonie Concertante by Joseph Jongen, written in 1926 for the largest organ in the world. It’s a magnificent showcase for soloist James O'Donnell, accompanied by full orchestra, and a resplendent climax to an evening of pure, ear-tingling sound at its most glorious.
