Duo Vivace to perform “Carnival of the Animals” at the Old Stone House next season. In a fun and creative collaboration with a local artist, Eleonor Bindman and Susan Sobolewski will present a piano duet version of C. Saint-Saens’ beloved Carnival of the Animals. Duo Vivace has been committed to music education since its formation in 1992.
“Eleonor Bindman has done a wonderful job for many musicians with her “Brandenburg Duets” project: a transcription of Bach’s Concertos Bach for 4 hands… The result is playfully as fresh and new as authentic and convincing. Balanced in sound, perfectly attuned to each other, the version reveals new sides to these works, and the pianists equally do justice to the solos as well as the tutti with four hands, so that it would be a real pleasure for Bach. The hope is to see the transcription published by 2020 in musical form – it would be a stroke of luck for the four-hand repertoire and its lovers. A wonderful recording.”
