Thirty years ago I would have said "The Swan" (from "The Carnival" by Saint Saens) was the most famous piece ever written for the cello, but times have changed. If you have trouble remembering how "The Swan" goes, just listen to it once, and put these words with it:

Who was it that said that swans have class?
Have you ever seen one dragging his a$$?

That will take you up to the high note perfectly, and you'll never miss it again! And you'll always know immediately, when people mention that piece, what it sounds like.

I learned to play "The Swan" on the piano many years ago. But for some reason I never took note that the composer was Saint-Saens. I wonder how I missed that.
