The Carnival of the Animals (Le carnaval des animaux) is a humorous musical suite of fourteen movements by the French Romantic composer Camille Saint-Saëns. The work was written for private performance by an ad hoc ensemble of two pianos and other instruments, and lasts around 25 minutes. Following a disastrous concert tour of Germany in 1885–86, Saint-Saëns withdrew to a small Austrian village, where he composed The Carnival of the Animals in February 1886.

Like some other people, I bought this album with an eye towards having a complete version of Saint-Saens' wonderful "Carnival of the Animals". But I was favorably impressed by the playing of E Power Biggs on the Organ parts of Saint-Saens' "Symphony His playing was masterful, to say the least, and it was not overpowered by the backing of the Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Eugene Ormandy.
Saint-Saëns was so fed up with the popularity of 'Carnival of the Animals', he stopped public performances of it in his lifetime (with the exception of The Swan; he probably realised there'd be a lynch mob of cellists at his front door within minutes if he tried to ban it). His Grand Zoological Fantasy has become a bit of a classical cliché, it's true, but this new one from Virgin started winning me over the second I set eyes on the cover: an anthropomorphic band of musicians with animals heads in fancy dress which seems to owe something to the Beatles Sgt. Pepper.
