Product Description

Le Cygne, or The Swan, is the penultimate movement of Camille Saint-Saëns 1886 suite, Carnival of the Animals. Most often played as a solo piece for cello with piano, the original version was scored for solo instrument and two pianos. It was the only movement for the Carnival that the composer allowed to be heard in public during his lifetime. This version for Flute with Piano accompaniment has been arranged to best suit the key and pitch of the solo instrument. The pdf file contains both the piano accompaniment and the separate solo part.

Musicians at an intermediate level and above will find this ideal for formal and informal performances. The melody is expressive and legato; the piano accompaniment is challenging in its constant semiquaver arpeggios. The overall performance time is around three minutes. The linked full-length youtube performance is the Clarinet version of this arrangement.

Teachers will enjoy using this arrangement as a fun way to help with expressive playing. The legato in both parts demand precise fingers.
