 good version November 3, 2013 By john clones (shrewsbury,Shrewbury, MO) See All My Reviews "Good version. it is strange that they have only one piano piece. Strange coupling. It has good liner notes. It says that Saint Saens had an interest in exotic music. These are two piece that I wish would be more popular and more recordings made." Report Abuse
