Animal Parade for Piano Solo

A fun adventure with ten animals, from the tallest to the fastest, the biggest to the nastiest. An affectionate caricature of wildlife, designed to complement Saint-Saëns' Carnival of the Animals. Includes brilliant and witty verses by Esther Eidinow for each animal, which may be recited in performance.
