The Carnival of the Animals in Full ScoreBy Camille Saint-Saëns Full Orchestra Full Score Item: 06-404129
Written in 1886 for a Mardi Gras celebration, Saint-Saëns' best-known work consists of 14 pieces scored for flute/piccolo, clarinet, glass harmonica (tuned glass bowls), xylophone, two pianos, and strings. Playfully borrowing themes from other works---including his own---the composer paints delightful musical portraits of a lion, chickens, turtles, an elephant, kangaroos, and the immensely popular swan.
