Saint-Saëns: Symphony No. 3; Debussy: La Mer; Ibert: Escales (CD)

Boston Symphony Orchestra

$16.99

Charles Munch's 1959 recording of the Saint-Saëns 3rd symphony has rarely left the catalogue since it was first released. The performance has become the benchmark against which others have been measured - thrilling in conception and sonic splendor.

The slightly earlier traversal of 'La Mer' is no less authoritative. Completing the all-French compilation is Jacques Ibert's vibrant evocations of Mediterranean destinations.
