The Portable Swan

Here's a performance from Tel Aviv by the Pizzicato Quartet playing my string quartet arrangement of Saint-Saens's "The Swan." I get a kick out of a group named the Pizzicato Quartet playing this arrangement because the viola part is played totally pizzicato. I call it a "portable" swan because it is a lot easer to travel around with a string quartet than with a harp or a piano!

You can see the arrangement here.

Congratulations on your arrangement, which works so well. In addition to hearing the musical lines in this admittedly amateur recording, the children's voices added something delightful, which could be characterized as the sounds of tomorrow's players and audiences.
