This magnificent cantilene Le Cygne [The Swan] by Camille Saint-Saëns is the 13th and penultimate movement of the Carnaval des animaux.

The Swan was originally composed for cello and two pianos.

It was first performed in public on March 9, 1886, but was not published until 1922, after the composer's death.

This sheet music of Le Cygne is an arrangement for descant (soprano) recorder with piano accompaniment (one piano).

It is appropriate for Grade 6 descant recorder players.

This arrangement of The Swan is written in E flat Major, with a 6/4 time signature.

The lyrical descant recorder melody is accompanied by broken chords in the piano.
