The Carnival of Animals
The talented Kanneh-Mason siblings are set to release their debut album, ‘Carnival of the Animals’ in November.
Recorded at Abbey Road Studios the release includes new poems by Michael Morpurgo OKS to accompany French composer Saint-Saëns much loved musical suite ‘Carnival of the Animals’. The poems are read by the author himself, joined by Academy Award winning actor Olivia Colman. The recording also features Michael’s Grandpa Christmas story set to music for the first time.
We were treated to an early listen of some of Michael’s poems when he joined us in the summer as part of our ‘Virtually King’s Week’. You can watch the recording of this talk below.
