Joshua Bell is the soloist in Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole, whose title conceals a virtuosic violin concerto steeped in the sounds of Spain, while Cameron Carpenter takes to the organ console in Saint-Saëns’s mighty ‘Organ’ Symphony. ‘With it I have given all I could,’ observed the composer. ‘What I did I could not achieve again.’
