Camille Saint-Saens (1835 - 1921), French composer. Le Carnaval was composed in February 1886 while Saint-Saens was vacationing in a small Austrian village. This is by far the most famous movement of the suite, often performed alone, and is used to showcase the interpretive skills of the cellist. The lushly romantic cello solo is played over rippling sixteenths on one piano and rolled chords in the other. In this arrangement the piano texture has been kept in the guitar part as faithfully as possible. Watch a performance of this arrangement on YouTube by the duo TenStrings.
