Dutoit and Dufour

The restless wanderings in the first movement of Saint-Saëns' Organ Symphony gradually yield to serene contemplation, growing in majestic grandeur with powerful organ chords and concluding in a series of brilliant fanfares. Charles Dutoit, renowned for his refined sense of orchestral color, also leads the world premiere of Guillaume Connesson's flute concerto, Pour sortir au jour, performed by the CSO's own Mathieu Dufour.
