This charming transcription of the opening piece from Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals, has captured the grandeur of the king of the jungle. The work is both majestic and descriptive, and is a great teaching tool for marcato style and chromaticism in the cellos and basses. Sure to be a favorite of both your students and your audience! This title is available in SmartMusic.

"Playable as a symphonic or strings-only work, this charming transcription of the opening of Carnival of The Animals is sure to please."
