Fabienne Jacquinot with the Westminster Symphony Orchestra
D'Indy: Symphony on a French Mountain Air
Saint Saens: Piano Concerto No. 5 in F, Op. 103, "The Egyptian"
This is not an audiophile copy, pretty scratchy, but that doesn't bug me, at least.
I like "Symphony on a French Mountain Air," but I only ever listen to the Saint Saens side, and like most of his work I've heard, this piece is quite beautiful and wonderfully crafted. An early morning favorite, sounds great with the sounds of brewing coffee and frying eggs.
