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’s arrangement is outstanding…Bindman and Jenny Lin really lean in to this freedom, swinging when Bach allows, and never staid or boring when things get more thoughtful or academic. … Though she may have started with purely pedagogical reasons for bringing this music to four hands and a piano keyboard… Bindman and Lin are obviously having too much fun here for it to be just that. And that makes it even more pleasurable for us to listen to.”
