Programme

When Camille Saint-Saëns concluded his Third Symphony in 1886, he was sure: “What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again.” The work is known as the “Organ Symphony” because Saint-Saëns added the “queen of the instruments” as a special feature to what was already a large orchestra. Dvořák composed his Cello Concerto, which is among his most popular works, a few years after Saint-Saëns’s stroke of genius. The two compositions enrich the season focus with music from the fin de siècle in a particularly effective manner.
