Description:

> The complete Carnival of the Animals for two flutes
> 14 challenging and effective pieces

Camille Saint-Saëns? The Carnival of the Animals is one of his most popular works altogether. Yet during his lifetime he refused to publish this orchestral piece for fear it would damage his reputation as a serious-minded musician.

Now Jennifer Seubel and Sally Beck, the flautists of 'Duo Noble?, have arranged this famous work for two flutes.

The transformation of the major instruments, timbres and melodies of the orchestral version into solely two flute parts posed a special challenge. The results exploit the full tonal spectrum of the flute. The arrangement offers several alternatives to expand the range of sound: for example, a piccolo can be substituted for either flute part in No. 2 Poules et coqs and for the first flute in No. 7 Aquarium.
