THE CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS

The Carnival of the Animals (Le Carnaval des animaux) is a humorous musical suite of fourteen movements by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. The work, about 25 minutes in duration, was written for two pianos and a chamber ensemble made up of two violins, viola, cello, double bass, flute, clarinet, harmonica and xylophone. Each of the 14 movements represents a different animal or animals including lions, roosters, tortoises, elephants, birds and even kangaroos! It’s lively, fun and wonderfully entertaining for all ages

Festival Finale Fond Farewells

The Festival is not over until we have heard the last note of Wolf-Ferrari’s ebullient and joyous Chamber Symphony. Before this swan song we will sample Ravel’s delicious Introduction and Allegro, Brett Dean’s (veritable public service announcement)  All Men Are Bastards and other goodies that will send AFCM 2022 into the sunset ready to rise again in 2023.
