The Utah Symphony under Music Director Thierry Fischer is recording a cycle of works by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns on Hyperion Records. This three-volume set will be the first complete, commercial recording of the composer’s five symphonies by an American orchestra. Volume 2 holds the Symphony No. 2 and the Symphony in F major (“Urbs Roma”), whose descriptive title—Saint-Saëns’s own—suggests a musical evocation of the Eternal City.
