Carnival of the Animals

Carnival of the Animals
Maestro Classics

Each animal is introduced with a poem written by Ogden Nash about the animal. The verses are interesting and fun. Each piece of music describes an animal. Listen to the "hee-haw of violins and "roar' of pianos.
The pairing of the animals' theme music with poetry makes this an outstanding CD performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. This CD is a treasure to listen to with many teacing moments.

With the CD is an information booklet that contains information
about the composer Camille Saint-Saens and the verses by Ogden Nash. The booklet is brightly colored and a charm to view.
