Given the poor quality of biographies, that one is missing is hardly a great loss. There's better info on classical composers than here on Pandora.

I see I'm not the only one disappointed that there's no bio. Seems a lot of their links don't take you where they're supposed to. sigh.
Carnival of the Animals, one of the most enjoyable and inventive pieces ever written. The Swan is one of the prettiest melodies ever written.
I'm sure they meant Swan from the Carnival of Animals. honest mistake.
Rene, Swan Lake is by Tchaikovsky, not Saint-Saens. . . The more you know! :)
Absolutely gorgeous piece regardless of bio. Isn't this music out of Swan Lake. Pandora is free to me and am just beginning to learn and study many composers. I do not expect them to answer every question. Just appreciate the daily listening while I sew.
Google is your friend!

...was a French composer, conductor, organist, and pianist of the Romantic era, famous for being a child prodigy, a virtuoso performer and sight-reader , and a polymath with a lifelong interest in mathematics and the sciences. Saint-Saëns composed in all the forms of his day, achieving great success with his Symphony No. 3, Organ; Carnival of the Animals; Danse Macabre; and many other works that have remained popular today...

That's all that fits, you find the rest!

Pandora: are you sill listening?
No one at Pandora reads these comments, or if they do, they don't care. So if you really want a bio, start an internet campaign to boycott their advertisers. T h e n maybe they will listen to their customers.

What happened to the Bio?
I'm pretty sure the beginning of this song was in Beauty and the Beast.

This music is also the music for The Dying Swan in the ballet Swan Lake
WOW - nice to know to whom I can credit the great music in that portion of Disney's Fantasia 2000 - thanks!
It was also the 5th part of Disney's Fantasia 2000 released in 1999.
Love this piece. Saint Saens was a very creative composer, and this is one of his best examples.
This has been used in a lot of movies and more often in cartoons of the 50, 60 and 70's, various Halloween specials too! It is a great piece!!!!!
