"The Carnival of the Animals" is a musical suite of fourteen movements by the French Romantic composer Camille Saint-SaŽns.

It was composed in February 1886 while Saint-SaŽns was vacationing in a small Austrian village. It was originally scored for a chamber group of flute/piccolo, clarinet (B flat and C), two pianos, glass harmonica, xylophone, two violins, viola, cello and double bass, but is usually performed today with a full orchestra of strings, and with a glockenspiel substituting for the rare glass harmonica. The term for this rare 11-piece musical ensemble is a "hendectet" or an "undectet."

Saint-SaŽns, apparently concerned that the piece was too frivolous and likely to harm his reputation as a serious composer, suppressed performances of it and only allowed one movement, Le cygne, to be published in his lifetime. Only small private performances were given for close friends like Franz Liszt.

Saint-SaŽns did, however, include a provision which allowed the suite to be published after his death. It was first performed on 26 February 1922, and it has since become one of his most popular works. It is a favorite of music teachers and young children, along with Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf and Britten's The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. In fact, it is very common to see any combination of these three works together on modern CD recordings.

Movement 6. Kangourous (Kangaroos) illustrates the playful Kanfgaroos in notes with the main figure as a pattern of 'hopping' fifths preceded by grace notes.

Although originally written for 2 Pianos (duet), I created this arrangement for Strings (2 Violins, 2 Violas, Cello & Bass).
