The Swan from Carnival of the Animals

Saint-Saens, C

Saint-Saens' famous The Swan, from The Carnival of the Animals, is presented in an elegant arrangement by Stephanie Jutt for flute and piano.

'Camille Saint-Saens had no intention of offering 'The Carnival of the Animals' to the public when he composed the piece early in 1886; he simply thought to provide an entertainment for his friends at Carnival time. Following the first private performance, Saint-Saens old friend and supporter, Franz Liszt, requested that the suite be given again. Thinking the work to be too frivolous to be considered as serious music, Saint-Saens then specifically prohibited further performances, allowing only one piece of the fourteen-section composition to be performed during his lifetime The Swan. On February 26, 1922, a little more than two months after the composer s death, the public premiere took place, and 'The Carnival of the Animals' quickly became one of Saint-Saens most popular works.'
