In this work I gave everything I had to give. [...] What I did here I will never do again.
Camille Saint-Saens was justifiably proud of his Symphony No. 3 in C minor op. 78, dedicated to the memory of Franz Liszt. Like Beethoven's Ninth, this so-called"Organ Symphony"was commissioned by the Philharmonic Society in London, where it received its premiere on 19 May 1886.

In this first scholarly-critical edition of the symphony, a great many inconsistencies and mistakes inherent in the previously used edition have been unveiled and corrected.

The edition of Symphony No. 3 marks the launch of a large-scale project: the publication of"Camille Saint-Saens - Complete Edition of the Instrumental Works". This performing Urtext edition is based on volume BA 10303 from that series.
