Program Notes on Le Cygne by Saint-Saëns :

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 viola with piano accompaniment (one piano).

It is appropriate for Grade 5 viola players.

The Swan is written in G Major, with a 6/4 time signature.

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

The viola part is to be played in the first five positions.
