A cultured, calming start to the week… Le Carnaval Des Animaux is a suite of fourteen movements by the composer Camille Saint-Saëns. When I was young, it was the accessible side of classical for family listening, like Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and the pervasive compilation series, Hooked on Classics. It was a toss up between the string quartet of the 7th movement ‘Aquarium’ and the cellos of the 13th, ‘The Cygne’. The Swan wins, of course. Have a great week.
