Format: Sheet Music | Part

“In this work I gave everything I had to give. […] What I did here I will never do again”. Camille Saint-Saëns was justifiably proud of his Symphony No.3 in C minor Op.78, dedicated to the memory of Franz Liszt. Like Beethoven’s Ninth, this so-called “Organ Symphony” was commissioned by the Philharmonic Society in London, where it received its premiere on 19 May 1886.

In this first scholarly-critical edition of the symphony, a great many inconsistencies and mistakes inherent in the previously used edition have been unveiled and corrected.

The edition of Symphony No.3 marks the launch of a large-scale project: the publication of Camille Saint-Saëns - Complete Edition of the Instrumental Works. This performing Urtext edition is based on volume BA 10303 from that series.

  • First scholarly-critical edition of this famous symphony based on Camille Saint-Saëns – Complete Edition of the Instrumental Works
