Info zu Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 3 / Debussy: La Mer / Ibert: Escales

Still the greatest recording of the Organ Symphony ever made, this latest remastering sounds even grander than the previous Living Stereo incarnation, with a more present and bass-rich organ making a positively cataclysmic experience out of the finale (sound sample attached). Fun as the loud bits are, to be honest it’s the sweetness of the strings in the slow movement, and the amazing way Munch gets the orchestra to really dig into the agitated rhythm of the first movement’s main theme, that together set the seal on this interpretation. He gives the theoretically cooly “classical” Saint-Saëns a remarkable range of expressive depth.

Neither the Debussy nor the Ibert were as brightly recorded, but the same general observations apply to this remastering. Munch’s Debussy seldom has impressed me as much as his Ravel, well regarded though it is, and I find this La Mer a bit on the hum-drum side, with surprisingly ineffective climaxes at the ends of the outer movements (where is the tam-tam when you need it?). The Ibert, on the other hand, is as colorful and festive as anyone could want. Does anyone even play this piece anymore? What a pity, as it’s great fun. So, although this is a bit of a mixed bag, it has the best Organ Symphony ever, and that’s well worth the cost of admission.“ (David Hurwitz,
