Karr performs with Harmon Lewis on piano for selections from 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 Up 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.

Since his debut with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic in 1962, Karr has performed as soloist on six continents with orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, Simon Bolivar Orchestra (Caracas, Venezuela), Jerusalem Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and with all the major orchestras of Australia.
