Recordings of Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals

Camille Saint-Saëns

The time has come to say goodbye, to all our vastly varied friends…

It was a pleasure to perform Camille Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals with Ann Arbor Camerata on March 19, 2017, at the University of Michigan’s Britton Hall. Below is its exhilarating finale, with Jotaro Nakano leading the Ann Arbor Camerata, and Victor Huls reading Peter Schickele’s narration.
