Saint-Saëns/Garban - The Carnival of the Animals

It's a very ingenious piece composed by Saint-Saëns who wanted to do a piece that represent the animals (for exemple the swan, the elephant...) using the different sounds of the instrument for that. What we play is a version arranged by Lucien Garban. Thank ...

Chopin - Étude #1 op 10

Hi to everyone! Today I'd like to show you one of the pieces that I played recently in a concert. ;) It's the Étude #1 composed by Frédérik Chopin.
