Musician's or Publisher's Notes

This piece from the French romantic composer Camille Saint-Saëns belongs to one of his most famous composition “The carnival of the animals”, a suite of 14 movements for chamber orchestra. Each movement of the suite is a humorous musical description of an animal: The Swan is the 13th movement and one of the most loved, due to its very peaceful and beautiful melody, capturing the smooth gliding of a swan on an undulating lake.     Notes by Jean Croisé
