Saint-Saens "The Swan" together with Bach's Prelude No 1 G major from Suite No 1. Does that work at all? A student asked me to try as the beginnings sounded to her similar. Her ideas were always interesting so I tried. Of course I had to modify the rhythm of Bach's Prelude from 4/4 fitting the Swan's 6/4. So I did, and indeed for several bars it just fitted encouraging me to complete the "Bach" accompaniment using elements of the Prelude to fit the Swan.
A surprising and entertaining sound combination!
