Description

The Swan is the 13th movement of Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals and was written in 1886. Originally scored for two pianos and a cello, this romantic solo, which represents the swan elegantly gliding across the water, is probably the most famous of all of the movements. This was the only movement of the work Saint-Saëns allowed to be published during his lifetime as he believed the rest of the work would damage his reputation as a serious composer.
