If you search the far from propitious-sounding http://www.amazon.co.uk/99-Most-Essential-Saint-Sa%C3%ABns-Masterpieces/dp/B004GBI06U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1431363326&sr=8-1&keywords=99+essential+saint-saens on amazon (and elsewhere I guess) up pops a fairly remarkable anthology - mainly based on ex-BIS catalogue recordings in moderate rate downloads but very good sound which includes all the symphonies in the versions Eric mentions (No.3 is ex-BIS but from Stockholm) plus all the string concerti and much else. Pretty much an instant Saint-Saens library at a very modest cost and in good performances.
