Naxos is producing an impressive series and made me go back and listen to some old recordings of good old Saint-Saens. 
The latest dish is the SAINT-SA╦NS Piano Concertos, Vol. 3 - Nos. 4 and 5 with the Malm÷ Symphony, another top notch orchestra.
Enjoy...   and please can we have some unsung composers???

I am not quite sure that is entirely fair. Naxos actually has a remarkable history of recording the music of a very considerable number of "unsung composers"

Saint-Saens wrote twelve operas. Other than Samson et Dalila they are uniformly 'unsung', and recordings are sparse or non-existent.

Although I realise that the musical form of opera is mostly unsung on this message-board.

I agree, although Henry VIII was recorded by Chant du Monde in 1991 (I think) and more recently Ediciones Singulares have released excellent recordings of Proserpine and Les Barbares, and I understand Le timbre d'argent may follow. I think there was a 2008 recording of Helene on the Melba label, if memory serves me right - don't know what it is like or if it is still available. So he is not doing too badly - at least of late.

Yes,  you are correct Colin. Naxos does have a lot of unsung releases.

There is a recording of Le Timbre d'Argent on UC.... And someone here or there said there is a plan afoot to record Ascanio.
