Review by JJ November 3, 2013 (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
The cover of this stereo SACD, devoted to the French composer Camille Saint- Saëns, is inviting, with no less than four top artist of classical music. Emil Guilels in the Concerto for Piano N°2 Op.22, by the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire de Paris that André Cluytens conducts, Mstislav Rostropovich in the Concerto for Cello N°1 Op.33 and the Philharmonia Orchestra directed by Sir Malcolm Sargent, Arthur Grumiaux in the Concerto for Violin N°3 Op.61 and the Concerts Lamoureux that Jean Fournet leads, and to conclude Isaac Stern in Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso Op.28 and the Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Eugene Ormandy. We are here in the “cream of the past” that we today look for in vain in contemporary artists. In a careful restoration, based on the original master tapes, these scores on SACD find their true place alongside other benchmark recordings of legend.
