The continued exploration of Saint-Saëns embraces two of his most popular works. French-Canadian pianist Louis Lortie demonstrates his virtuosity and flair in the Second Piano Concerto, and musicians of the Utah Symphony join the spotlight as soloists for the inspired depictions of creatures from kangaroos and fish to tortoises and birds, culminating in the most famous musical character of all, The Swan.
