Uncle Bardie’s Spotlight Song: Aquarium

Once a week on Friday, Uncle Bardie celebrates the creativity in others by shining a Spotlight on a movie, a song or a creator. This week’s Spotlight is Camille Saint-Saens “Aquarium” from “Le carnaval des animaux (The Carnival of the Animals)” and it is performed by Marian Lapsansky, Peter Toperczer, Ondrej Lenárd & Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra:

This is one of the most magical pieces ever written. I listen to this piece and all sorts of wonder comes to my mind. Flowers dancing. Fish swimming. Waterfalls. Santa’s workshop. Snow and Christmas lights. All sorts of beautiful things.

I first became entranced by this piece when I visited the French Pavilion at Disney’s EPCOT. At the Pavilion, they have a ten minute panorama touring France. And this is the musical soundtrack.

  1. My wife insists that she would never listen to classical music (I do all the time). Then I ask her, “ever watched a movie?”
    “Sure.”
    “Then you have listened to classical music – and probably liked it.”
