All Analogue AAA Recording! Mastered by Kevin Gray
from the Original Analogue Tapes & Pressed at Pallas in Germany on 180g Vinyl!
This release features Gary Karr performing with Harmon Lewis on piano for a
group of classical pieces, folk songs, and carols by Schubert, Rachmaninoff,
Saint-Saens, and more.
Although it features Schubert's "Arpeggione Sonata", the gem on this recording
is a Canadian folksong, "When I Wake Up in the Morning." It has been a staple
encore piece of the Karr/Lewis Duo for 30 years since they lived in Nova Scotia.
Gary Karr, acclaimed as "the world's leading solo bassist" (Time Magazine), is,
in fact, the first solo doublebassist in history to make that pursuit a
full-time career. It is a career that adds new lustre to his already lustrous
1611 Amati doublebass which was given to him by the widow of Serge Koussevitzky.
Since his debut with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic in 1962,
Karr has performed as soloist on six continents with orchestras, including the
Chicago Symphony, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic,
Montreal Symphony, Simon Bolivar Orchestra (Caracas, Venezuela), Jerusalem
Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and with all the major
orchestras of Australia.
