Saint-Saëns’ travels often resulted in geographically themed works, such as the Suite algérienne: this exotic musical picture postcard – full of perfumed sensuality and the brazen confidence of march themes – reflects the composer’s visits to colonial North Africa. The two suites on this recording are both structured around dance movements and were originally scored for different forces – the Suite in D major, op.49 for harmonium, the Suite in D minor, op.16 for cello and piano. The engaging Serenade, op.15, rarely performed with its original, exotic scoring, is heard here in an orchestral transcription.
