Why did it take so long to realize this? The true heroes, the honored and adored subjects of countless classical works, are not obscure distant lovers, landscapes or heroic ideals - no, our animal friends are what inspired the great masters! Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov devoted his most popular piece (also one of the most famous classical works ever) to a bumblebee, Bach wrote "Sheep May Safely Graze", Camille Saint-Saëns created an entire imaginary musical zoo in his famous "Carnival of the Animals", Jacques Ibert composed a monument to a donkey. We can thank the Salut Salon ensemble, along with many others, for exploring this zoological side of music.
