Frank, this cd?
http://www.amazon.com/Poulenc-Organ-Concerto-Symphony-Guilmant/dp/B000000AUI

Do you know if they have it in SACD/Blu ray?

That would be me for one.

I have been looking for something worth buying. I found a link to the CD you referenced.

I have also read about this SACD. However, i dont know if i want to buy it just yet..

Frankee, I'm not familiar with that disc; thanks for bringing it to our attention. I don't know the Guilmant at all, but the samples sound interesting. Of course I'm well-familiar with the Widor, and I'll point out that many may have heard its Toccata section being used as a recessional at formal weddings, or perhaps at the conclusion of the Midnight(now evening)Mass at Christmas from the Vatican.

Alex, I don't completely share Mr. Hurwitz's quoted enthusiasm for the Munch Saint-Saens 3rd as still being the best ever performance(incidentally, his complete and slightly less enthusiatic review and rating is here ).

For an excellent and inexpensive recording of the Saint-Saens 3rd(and a fine Phaeton)I'd suggest that you consider this one .

Dakkon, I have that SACD and, to me, it is somewhat lacking. For an SACD the recording is a bit muddied, not dynamic, clear, and punchy. The performance itself kinda puts me to sleep. The whole thing never gets off the ground.

You're better off going with JohnK's suggestion.

Dakkon, that's the one. As far as I know it's available only in standard CD format.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Check out Joe Satriani's live concert in San Fransisco if you're a Stuart Hamm fan, SB.
