About "Danse Macabre"
Danse macabre is originally a tone poem for orchestra, written in 1874 by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. It started out in 1872 as an art song for voice and piano with a French text by the poet Henri Cazalis, which is based on an old French superstition. In 1874, the composer expanded and reworked the piece into a tone poem, replacing the vocal line with a solo violin part.
In this arrangement the solo violin part will be performed by the alto saxophone and the orchestra is reduced to a reed quintet (obviously), while maintaining the spirit of the piece.
Enjoy this arrangement!
