Camille Saint-Saëns: Elephant - The Carnival Of The Animals: Double Bass

Instrumental Work | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation Double Bass and Piano
Composer Camille Saint-Saëns
Publisher G. Henle Verlag
Camille Saint-Saens' Elephant is a delightful miniature from The Carnival Of The Animals and is one of the few works that are attractive to learners and accomplished players alike. Its many musical and technical challenges have earned it a permanent place in the teaching repertoire, yet it offers soloists a welcome opportunity to demonstrate their prowess and espirit, even in the low register.

The ease with which a great composer accurately and skilfully probes the idiosyncracies of this largest of string instruments for expressive purposes - a combination of features seldom encountered in the double bass repertoire - is truly impressive. All the more astonishing, therefore, that the Elephant, although widely known, is relatively rarely heard in the concert hall.

This Urtext edition of the score has been edited with critical commentaries, as well as fingering and bowing of the double bass part, by Tobias Glockler. The accompaniment is notated in E flat and F, and so the double bass can perform using either solo tuning or orchestra tuning.
