Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No.3 well known as the ‘Organ Symphony’ was composed in 1886 when Saint-Saëns’ was at the height of his career as a composer and famous organist. A wonderful opportunity to hear the magnificent Binns Organ, as well as piano scored for both two and four hands, as part of this melodic symphony with some grand and majestic passages. 

Les Animaux Modèles is a ballet by Francis Poulenc based on Jean de La Fontaine’s Fables. It was written during the German occupation of France in the Second World War between 1940 and 1942. The suite contains extracts from the ballet.
