Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the composition "Carnival", Saint-Saens makes fun of some of his colleagues (Offenbach, Berlioz, Rossini, and Mendelssohn). Frightened by his own joke, he withdrew the score. It was therefore published after his death. In the composition "Carnival", Saint-Saens makes fun of some of his colleagues (Offenbach, Berlioz, Rossini, and Mendelssohn).
