Mvt. 1: "Danse Macabre (Saint-Saenz)" is a brilliant arrangement of the unofficial anthem of Halloween, composed in 1874 by French composer Charles-Camille Saint-Saëns. With xylophones to mimic the rattling bones of dancing skeletons, the lively music evokes images of spirits and ghouls emerging at nightfall to dance and roam while the living slumber.
