"The Swan" from The Carnival of the Animals
by Camille Saint-Saëns
arranged for two pianos by Anderson & Roe
Drift... explore aimlessly
Imagine a swan drifting in a pond and the water rippling in its wake. Try listening similarly: drift; allow yourself to explore aimlessly.
Camille Saint-Saëns originally composed "The Swan" for cello and two pianos. In our arrangement, we've recreated the music according to the strengths of our instrumentation, immersing the melody in pianistic ripples of sound. This music conjures up not only the image of a graceful swan gliding along the water; it seems to be the very representation of the beauty in the world and people around us.
