Part 2
The Suite, Le Carnaval des Animaux, sub-titled Grande Fantaisie Zoologique, begins with an ' Introduction and Royal March of the Lion.' Cocks and hens follow. Then come wild asses, of the kind that inhabit Central Asia and are called by the composer ' beasts of velocity.' The tortoises that now make themselves heard are represented by themes from Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld, played very slowly and softly. The elephant, brought forward by the double-bass in the fifth piece, is represented, incongruously enough, by Berlioz' well-known * Dance of the Sylphs.' The kangaroos that enter next are conjured up by the two pianists. A delicate piece of tone-painting follows, called ' The Aquarium '; then we are introduced to ' people with, long ears '. The cuckoo is next heard, deep in the woods; this is followed by ' The Aviary.' Pianists now take their place in the Carnival; and it need hardly be said that the two soloists have it almost entirely to themselves, though the composer directs them to ' imitate the playing of a beginner and his clumsiness.' In fossils, the twelfth piece (in which the xylophone is prominent) there are several quotations, including the skeleton music from Saint-Saens' own Danse Macabre and the familiar nursery tune ' Ah, vous dirai-je, Maman.' The famous melody of ' The Swan ' brings a point of repose (and an opportunity for the solo cellist) before the Carnival comes to an end with a rousing and entertaining gallop. Harold Rutland

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
