Programme notes by D.F.T.

In his note on the Saint-Saëns Professor Tovey quotes from the preface of the score:
"Phaëton has obtained leave to drive the chariot of the Sun, his father, though the heavens.  But his unskilled hands mislead the horses.  The flaming chariot, thrown out of its path, draws too near to the earth: the whole universe is on the point of perishing in fire, when Jupiter strikes with his thunderbolt the rash Phaëton,"
