Composer: CAMILLE SAINT-SAENS
Other participants: Plácido Domingo, Renata Scotto, Katia Labéque, Marielle Labéque, James Levine, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra

This album showcases Itzhak Perlman’s voice rather than his violin. His rich tones and acute timing make him an engaging narrator for The Carnival of the Animals and Peter and the Wolf, and he even becomes an operatic bass — alongside Plácido Domingo — in Puccini’s Tosca.
