It's always a good thing when a new recording fills a hole in the catalogue, and this all-Saint-Saëns chamber programme from seasoned collaborators Renaud Capuçon, Bertrand Chamayou and Edgar Moreau is one of those. Firstly because, while there already exists a generous smattering of readings of the first violin and cello sonatas from a range of top names, they tend not to be paired with each other. Plus, they've never been paired with the magnificent Piano Trio No. 2, which itself has been much less recorded. Add the fact that here we have not just three of France's finest artists, but among them the pianist who carried off Gramophone's “2019 Recording of the Year” precisely for his Saint-Saëns (recording of Concertos Nos. 2 & 5), there's a whole host of reasons why this album deserves your full attention.The Violin Sonata No. 1 gets things off to a great start. Dubbed the “Hippogriff Sonata” by Saint-Saëns on account of the near-mythical powers it requires of the violinist, this work demands not just supreme technique, but also a wide palette of colours, and the ability to apply them sometimes with the kind of nuance that suggests there's more going on emotionally than is perhaps sitting on the surface. Capuçon is well endowed with mystical technical powers, and they're in full play over this warm-toned performance delivered with unfailing elegance. Crucially also, the closeness of the dialogue between him and multi-coloured Chamayou yields a constant succession of pleasures that reach their apotheosis in the moto perpetuo virtuosities of the final Allegro molto. Equally crucially, the bright engineering has honoured the piano's importance, both in the overall balance, and in the clarity with which every single perfectly articulated, iridescent note of Chamayou's has been captured.The same holds true for the capturing of his piano concerto-esque virtuosities in the Cello Sonata No. 1, classily delivered by Moreau, who himself employs a satisfyingly wide dynamic range, while maintaining finesse of tone and attack even through the stormiest moments.Where this recording deserves reference status, however, is with the Trio. Just listen to the journey these three have taken us on even before we've made it to bar 20: the dramatically taut, forwards-propulsion of the piano's dark, opening chords; tonal matching from Capuçon and Moreau that's so exact through their passings of the melodic line that you really have to strain to hear where one stops and the other picks up; the myriad of colouristic nuances and shapings and fluctuations of temperature being brought by one and all to the music's moody rise and fall; then the glorious parting of the clouds from them as the E major second theme drops. Or, for an example at the other end of the work, listen to the impeccably tight chamber partnering on display through their deftly wrought, filigree fugue in the final movement. Also the achingly lovely upper register singing from Capuçon in that movement's (and indeed the entire trio's) softer, longer-lined moments. The whole thing is leaping out of the stereo from first to final chord, glowing, glittering, exciting and charming on every front.Highly recommended. © Charlotte Gardner/Qobuz

The Malmö Symphony Orchestra and its conductor Jun Markl uphold a repertoire which is rarely heard live, specifically French music from the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. After Albéric Magnard (BIS in 1999 and 2000) and Vincent d’Indy (Naxos, 2019), they have published a Camille Saint-Saëns album (once again for Naxos). An untiring globe-trotter, Saint-Saëns peppers his music with effects which create a background of different sounds. As opposed to Louise by Gustave Charpentier or Pelléas by Debussy, Les Barbares by Saint-Saëns (conceived in 1901) is a new example of the purest tradition of of French lyricism. The harmonic richness of the score, its bountiful melodies and the opulence of its orchestration do not break any new ground. Indeed, it seems Saint-Saëns is more inventive when composing within a more classic framework. However, despite the anachronistic nature of this work, which is also identified in Ascanio, La princesse jaune, Jota aragonese, Andromaque and Ouverture d’un opéra-comique inachevé, the listener savours every note. The programme, which combines the orchestral pages of these scores (ballet, opera and other lyrical tragedy), allows the Malmö Symphony Orchestra to show the full range of their musical colour: sumptuous strings, soaring harps and an irresistible harmony make them sound like one lone supermusician. Indeed, Jun Markl sculpts the MSO with uniformity in mind - the sound recording sticks to this approach as well - highlighting the the powerful lyrical dimension of this repertoire. An inspiring and necessary account of the genius of French orchestration. © Elsa Siffert/Qobuz

Now, no-one could argue that there are too many recordings of the orchestral suites of Saint-Saëns! All the more reason, then, to welcome this new album from the Basque National Orchestra (Euskadiko Orkestra Sinfonikoa, in Basque), which as well as the Suite algérienne Op. 60 of 1879-1880, the Suite in D major Op. 49 written for harmonium in 1863, orchestrated by the composer in 1877, offers us the Suite in D minor Op. 16b, first written in 1863 for cello and piano and then orchestrated, by the master himself, in 1919 – and augmented with two additional movements. The Suite algérienne is mainly Algerian in name - consider that the fourth and final movement is a "French military march", hurrah for Empire - while the exotic accents seem to roam around, from Bohemia to Moorish Spain, with only very sporadic jaunts to North Africa, a part of the world that the composer did know well, but perhaps not so much musically as... well. In Suite Op. 49, the discreet instrumentation and the language which has been deliberately borrowed from baroque serve to underline the first composition for harmonium. Finally, the Suite Op. 15b is a kind of concerto-fantasia for cello, and here the Spanish cellist Guillermo Pastrana officiates with panache. Here again, Bach is never far away, even in these delightful romantic tones, which would not have disgraced Lalo! © SM/Qobuz

With this latest consignment of concertos by Saint-Saëns, the Malmö Orchestra directed by Marc Soustrot and with the pianist Romain Descharmes round off an adventure that began in 2013. The 1875 Fourth Concerto, charming enough on its own account, also appears to prefigure the Organ Symphony which was written ten years later, both in terms of the musical discourse but also the orchestral grip: it's recognisable from a mile off. Twenty years separate the Fourth from the Fifth, written in 1896 to celebrate fifty years since the composer made his 1846 Parisian début. The work's nickname – taken from its origin in the town of Luxor which Saint-Saëns visited during one of his frequent stays in Egypt, where he would take refuge from wintry Paris and enjoy the local attractions – is slightly misleading, as the concerto doesn't really have any particularly Middle Eastern or North African accents, but instead it is more marked by Spanish influences (well, Arabo-Andalusian, strictly speaking). Rather than being "Egyptian", the work is more of a rich tapestry of diverse cultural influences against a Pyramid-themed backcloth. The second movement offers a few zoological notes, closing to the sounds of croaking toads and chirping Nile crickets. © SM/Qobuz
