Abstract:

A 55-minute CD of music and poetry included inside! Ladies and gentlemen, take your seats for Carnival of the Animals! Tap your feet, clap your hands, let the words flow and the music swell, and allow these poems and pictures to transport you. Inspired by Saint-Saens' famous "zoological fantasy," this magnificent book combines specially commissioned work by thirteen acclaimed modern poets with bold and glorious illustrations by Satoshi Kitamura. The accompanying fifty-five-minute CD, performed by the Apollo Chamber Orchestra, features a reading of each of the fourteen poems followed by the appropriate musical passage, beautifully evoking for young listeners each of the animals in Saint-Saens' famous 1886 fantasy for two pianos and orchestra. Exciting poems by an international array of poets and riotous images by the award-winning Satoshi Kitamura illustrate Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saens.
