Picture of Two 'classic' pieces for double bass and piano from 'The Carnival of the Animals' by Camille Saint-Saens.

A newly edited version of the bassist's most famous work alongside two versions (high/low) of Tortoises. With reference to the first published edition and the composer's manuscript, this reinstates the full piano accompaniment of The Elephant, and also includes a history of the work by David Heyes. The Elephant is also available for double bass and string quartet (RM302).
