Symphony No 3 in C minor ‘Organ’ - Camille Saint-Saëns

Now in its third year, The Grand Organ Gala has become one of London’s marquee organ events, as the magnificent 7246-pipe Cathedral Organ joins forces with full symphony orchestra in an American/French, French/American programme that culminates in Saint-Saëns’ classic Organ Symphony. Along the way we encounter the Barber’s epic Toccata Festiva and Gershwin’s iconic An American in Paris, complete with car horns!
