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 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.
Contains 11 pieces of music on 180 gram vinyl mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analogue tapes & pressed at Pallas in Germany!
