The Swan Project

This is the only movement from The Carnival of the Animals that the composer allowed to be played in public during his lifetime. He thought the remaining movements were too frivolous and would damage his reputation as a serious composer.
~Wikipedia on "Le Cygne" by Camille Saint-Saëns

Isn't this beautiful? Thank you to the performers and producer!

Beautiful. Thank you. The fish is my favorite movement in this piece, but they're all wonderful.
