The Dance of the Elephant for two violins and piano; the listener is confronted with a scenery in which an animal trainer wants to teach his elephant to dance. He caresses the elephant and shows him how to dance. The elephant however is fat and heavy. Moreover the elephant doesnt seem to understand his teacher. The trainer cuddles the elephant again and sweetly implores him to dance without result. At last the trainer starts crying desperately, and the elephant now seems to understand the message. He jumps like a calf and trumpets with his trunk. After a few seconds the elephant becomes tired, however, and collapses. After all the trainer seems to be proud with this modest result.
