This is one of Camille Saint-Saëns's most famous works, even though it was only known about since his passing, as he only allowed The Swan to be performed during his lifetime (as he considered the rest too silly). Originally composed for a small orchestra with few woodwinds, no brass, a small string section and two pianos, each movement of this humorous suite paints a musical picture of one of several animals, including but not limited to lions, elephants, kangaroos and donkeys, using various techniques to create certain moods.

And now, you and your sax quartet may purchase this piece to perform my very own arrangement of this piece - as long as you can find a good pianist and xylophonist - with 25% off the price you'd pay if you purchased each movement separately! So what are you waiting for? Order now!

Unfortunately, I am unable to attach the audio file, since it is too large, so here it is on YouTube instead:
