The Carnival of the Animals (Le carnaval des animaux) is a humorous musical suite of fourteen movements by the French Romantic composer Camille Saint-Saëns. The work was written for private performance by an ad hoc ensemble of two pianos and other instruments, and the complete work lasts around 25 minutes.

I have arranged a selection of  pieces from this suite for wind quintet-

They are:

I. Introduction et Marche Royale du Lion( Inroduction and Royal March of the Lion)

II. Poules et Coqs (Hens and Roosters)

IV. Tortues (Tortoises)

V. L'Eléphant (The Elephant)

XII. Fossiles (Fossils)

XII. Le Cygne (The Swan)

XIV. Final (Finale)
