Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony - Ormandy - Biggs

This particular performance of the symphony places a greater emphasis on its power than the well-known recordings by Munch and Paray, which prioritize its beauty and finesse. Ormandy highlights the impressive talent of the Philadelphia Orchestra, while also featuring Biggs more prominently than other recordings likely due to his status as one of Columbia's most popular classical performers at the time. Additionally, the recording quality is excellent, (A great test for your subwoofers) making this one of the most popular classical pieces a fantastic release.
