 Delightful! October 27, 2012 By Barbara Romine (Santa Ana, CA) See All My Reviews "I ordered this after hearing Rich Capparela describe how this piece was never really intended for the public because Saint-Saens thought it was too frivolous. I fell in love with it when I heard it on the radio and came home and ordered it. I'm so glad that I did. I love being able to listen to it whenever I want to. Thank you for making it available!"
