Congratulations to L.U. of Irvine and Shari of Irvine for winning our Name That Tune contest and correctly guessing the song as “The Swan”, by Camille St. Saens! They both will receive $500 in office credit to be used toward any service or procedure we offer.
Here are some interesting facts about “The Swan” or “Le Cygne” in French:
- The Swan was the only movement from the “Carnival of Animals” that St. Saens allowed to be performed in his lifetime. When choreographed to ballet it is often known as “The Dying Swan” after a poem by Tennyson.
- When performed alone, it is commonly scored for solo cello and solo piano. Enjoy this beautiful version of “The Swan” performed by world-famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
