Camille Saint-Saens: Symphony No.3 In D Minor 'Organ' Op.78 (Miniature Score)
Dedicated to the memory of Franz Liszt, the composer's friend and mentor, Saint-Saëns' Symphony No. 3 ("Organ") ranks among the most important works in French symphonic music. In this work, Saint-Saëns achieves a synthesis of the traditional four-movement symphony with Liszt's characteristic thematic metamorphosis — all forms of the theme being derived from the four-note "dies Irae" motif from the Gregorian mass for the dead.
Ideal for use in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable new miniature-score edition offers music lovers, performers, and students an opportunity to study this masterpiece of the late Romantic repertoire in an accessible, convenient format.
