The risibly random ramblings of an apanthropic hemegomisian hadeharian polymathetischian technophilic tonopoeic transhumanist logolept.

Enchanted by Camille Saint-Saëns’s work for solo piano, “Carillon”, I recently decided to have a go at arranging the work for different instrumentations, resulting in both an orchestral arrangement and an arrangment for string quintet (2vn, va, vc, cb). In the end I think each, these as well as the piano original, has a certain charm of its own, though perhaps I’m biased: what do you think?

Carillon, Op. 72, no. 2 (for string quintet) and Carillon, Op. 72, no. 2 (for orchestra).

A third addition, I have also arranged Saint-Saëns' Toccata, Op. 72, no. 3 for string quintet.
