Carnival of the Animals

Carnival of the Animals

A timeless children’s classic, Carnival of the Animals is clever, charming and musically sophisticated.


This is the best new recording with the original Ogden Nash verses and full London Philharmonic Orchestra. What child could ever forget:

“Elephants are useful friends,

Equipped with handles at both ends.

They have a wrinkled moth proof hide,

Their teeth are upside down, outside.”

24-page CD booklet includes complete Odgen Nash verses with pictures by well-known children’s book illustrator, Anne Wilsdorf.

Additional educational tracks plus music-only version of the complete work.
