The king of instruments — in all its power and majesty — is saved for the final movement of Saint-Saëns’s grand, Romantic symphony when, in a blaze of C-major glory, Philharmonic organist Kent Tritle pulls out all the stops. Also, Leif Ove Andsnes (“a pianist of magisterial elegance, power, and insight” — The New York Times) explores the piano’s many personalities in Britten’s high-spirited concerto.
