Saint-Saens-“The Swan”- Hanna Chang

Bak-jo! (Swan in Korean) , the word the pianist said before he start to play.

The professional Cellist Hanna Chang brings sensitivity of phrasing, depth of feeling, perfect intonation and a superb rich tone to Camille Saint-Saens-“The Swan”.

Althought, great French composer Camille Saint-Saens wrote “The Carnival of the Animals” as a joke and banned complete performances -because he worried that it might damage his reputation- and only allowed one movement, The Swan (the 13th and penultimate movement ), to be published while he was alive. The piece became one of the most charming pieces of all time.
