Le Cygne (The Swan) by Camille Saint-Saëns

Le Cygne (The Swan) by Camille Saint-Saëns


Le Cygne (The Swan) is taken from Camille Saint-Saëns Le Carnaval des Animaux (The Carnival of the Animals). In some orchestral versions, the cello and harp are featured prominently, and it is common to perform the piece simply as a duet for the two instruments. This transcription for cello and lever harp features a challenging lever harp part, including many lever changes. Some of the chord voicing have been changed for efficiency with the lever changes, which are marked with diamond shaped notes throughout.


(The corresponding video is a cello and pedal harp performance. Lever harp video is coming soon.)


Written for lever harp; intermediate/advanced level. 5 pages, including the cello part.
