Natalie Clein performs works for cello and orchestra by Camille Saëns. The first concerto has always been one of Saint-Saens's most popular pieces. It is a gloriously playful piece that carries the listener along on a melodic and emotional roller coaster. The second concerto is less familiar to most listeners. Extremely difficult for the soloist, Clein surmounts its challenges with the marvelous technique, musicianship and the passion for which she has become so well known.

Recorded in London’s Henry Wood Hall in November 1977, these two performances offer a special reminder of the magic of Mstislav Rostropovich. If ever one needs to relive the pure magic of music, that elusive quality that operates above and beyond all words, it is to Rostropovich that one can confidently turn; especially when he is in partnership with another “great”—here, Giulini.

The essence of Camille Saint-Saëns' music comes through perhaps most clearly in his music for solo instrument and orchestra, which exemplifies his elegant combination of melody and conservatory-generated virtuosity. The two cello concertos are here, plus a pair of crowd-pleasing short works for piano and orchestra, and the evergreen Carnival of the Animals, with pianists Louis Lortie and Hélène Mercier joining forces along with a collection of instruments that includes the often-omitted glass harmonica. There are all kinds of attractions here: the gently humorous and not over-broad Carnival, the songful cello playing of Truls Mørk, and the little-known piano-and-orchestra scene Africa, Op. 89, with its lightly Tunisian flavor (sample this final track). But really, the central thread connecting them all is the conducting of Neeme Järvi and the light, graceful work of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra; French music is the nearly 80-year-old Järvi's most congenial environment, and in this recording, perhaps his last devoted to Saint-Saëns, he has never been better.

After a highly acclaimed recording of Briten’s Cello Symphony (ONYX4058) Pieter Wispelwey and the Flanders Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Seiko Kim, turn to two romantic cello concertos whose neglect is hard to fathom. Lalo, unusually for a French composer in the mid 19th century, was drawn to chamber music, and formed a string quartet (in which he played viola, and later second violin) that championed the works of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. His passion for chamber music developed to embrace large scale orchestral works – two violin concertos, the famous 'Symphonie espagnole' for violin and orchestra, a symphony in G minor, the Piano Concerto and the concerto recorded here: the Cello concerto in D minor of 1877.

This ambitious project consists of a recording of the complete music for violin and orchestra and cello and orchestra by Camille Saint-Saëns. No major composer of the last two centuries, in any land, has matched Saint-Saëns's devotion to the concertante form. This recording project, presenting his complete works for violin and orchestra and for cello and orchestra, provides a rare (indeed a unique!) opportunity to perceive the gradual development of Saint-Saëns's style.

The French cellist-star Emmanuelle Bertrand (who seems to have forgotten a little something on the cover photo of the album …) embarks here in an exploration of several masterpieces of Saint-Saëns, one of the French composers who most enriched the repertoire of the instrument with two concertos, two other concert works, two completed sonatas and some other isolated works. His first Concerto, given here with the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, dates from 1872 - the first creative period, still marked by Schumann or Mendelssohn, even though in the harmonic and orchestral limpidity "à la française" of which Saint-Saëns Would always be the defender.
