Hi to everyone!! I've alredy posted this video but my piano partner and me, we've done a YouTube channel and we wanted to promote our videos. Very soon there will be some very interessting thins there!! smile

Well, I post the Carnival of the Animals. It's a very ingenious piece composed by Saint-Saëns who wanted to do a piece that represent the animals (for exemple the swan, the elephant...) using the different sounds of the instrument for that. What we play is a version arranged by Lucien Garban.

Thank you very much to everyone!! laugh

Very nice! I think you could both pay a bit more attention to the written directions on the score (tempo and dynamics), as sometimes I don't feel that the animal is very clearly represented - but it was still fun to listen to! smile
