Oz Music

This album presents a selection of Saint-SaĆ«ns' incidental music and music from his operas. From Samson et Dalila- the only one of Saint-SaĆ«ns' operas to remain in the repertory - we hear two memorable and adrenalin-fueled dances including the famous Bacchanale. Henry VIII drew from the composer music of regal solemnity with plenty of colorful scoring, praised by Gounod. The lukewarm reception to Ɖtienne Marcel came as a bitter disappointment to Saint-SaĆ«ns but the customary ballet includes a strong element of delightful 14th-century pastiche. The incidental music to the play Parysatis received tumultuous acclaim at it's premiere in 1902 and includes the delightful Airs de ballet flecked by the use of crotales (antique finger-cymbals).
