Synopsis

Album Description
The "grand zoological fantasy" called Le Carnaval des Animaux by Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921) is only the best known of several devilishly witty pieces this composer indulged himself with from time to time. Most of them can be found on this irresistible album, including the perky and absolutely unique Trumpet Septet. Ross Pople and his London Festival Orchestra are the ideal performers for music of this freshness and vigor.

"I bought this cd for myself, but my 2 year old and my husband now ask to listen to it all the time. Beautiful music to spark a young interest in the classics."
