Release Date:04/27/2018;Notes:Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Noted pianist Martha Argerich, alongside pianist Nelson Freire, perform Saint-Saens' 'Carnival of The Animals' for this audiophile recording. Other compositions performed include 'Ferdinand' and 'Little Sad Sound' by Alan Ridout and Tier Gebete by Frieder Meschwitz. Among the performers are violinist Gidon Kremer, pianist Elena Bashkirova, and double bassist Alois Posch. "Everything is clear. Rhythms spring. Individuals get to leave their cherry bombs on the doorstep or to sing beautifully. Argerich and Freire, for example, outrageously mug up "Pianistes," rhythmically pulling the pianos ever more wildly out of sync, and then bringing them back together with a bang at the "coda. " Irena Grafenauer's flute chirps merrily in "Volieres. " Eduard Brunner on clarinet emits the cuckoo's cry from the middle of the deep woods. I've rarely heard it sound so lonely. Overall, the performance blends extremely high musicianship with kiddie rough-house. " - classical. Net.;Track List:1. Le Carnaval Des Animaux (The Carnival of the Animals);2.
