36:15 BBC Proms 2013 – Saint-Saëns – Symphony No 3 in C minor, Op 78 – Järvi with Piano and Organ (entry @ 36:29)

Commenter: ”
This is one of the better interpretations on YouTube. It’s frustrating though, it’s a difficult symphony to do justice for over video or even audio recording. There’s something magical about hearing that organ in real life, especially for the 3rd movement. I’ve seen it performed twice, once at BBC Proms, and both times I got serious chills down my spine when that organ starts in the final minute. It’s simply incredible! A glorious, marvelous and awe inspiring piece of music.”
