Books | Brass Quintet

Publisher: Broadbent and Dunn
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts

The most famous movement from Saint-Saëns The Carnival Of The Animals, The Swan uses music to capture the movements of the graceful bird as it glides elegantly over the water with only its reflection for company.

In this arrangement for Brass Quintet it is the Trombone, with its lush tenor sound, that portrays the Swan. The other accompanying instruments contribute to the piece with rolling chords, representing the bird's feet beneath the water that propel it along.
