A few years ago we published the 'Elephant' from the 'Carnival of the Animals'. The curtain now rises for a further performance: the proud and elevated solo of the 'Swan'. Charles-Joseph Lebouc organised the première of this work and also played the cello part. With the composer's permission, he then adapted this sonorous romance, accompanied by two pianos in the original, for violoncello and one piano. We are presenting the first ever Urtext edition of this popular cello work. The second piano part is reproduced in small print, thus permitting a comparison of the two versions.?
