Le Cygne (The Swan) by Camille Saint-Saens
College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences
The Swan is the 13th movement of the 'The Carnival of the Animals' by Camille Saint-Saëns. Also known as 'Le Cygne' in French, this is one of the most famous cello works originally scored for cello accompanied by two pianos. Like the animal it is named after, this is a very graceful and elegant piece. For this performance, my classmate Aaron Lopez is accompanying me on piano while I am playing the cello.
