ICON: MENUHIN AND GRAPPELLI - FRIENDS IN MUSIC

$ 14.99 $ 27.29

This 4 CD set containing all the recordings that the two legendary violinists Yehudi Menuhin and Stéphane Grappelli made for EMI is a further release in the EMI Classics ICON series.

The 4 CDs contain 86 songs, many by the great American songwriters George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, as well as jazz standards like ‘Sweet Georgia Brown’, ‘Lullaby of Birdland’ and ‘Crazy Rhythm’. There are also 13 items composed by Grappelli himself, several of which were written specially for Menuhin.

The song ‘I didn’t know what time it was’ by Richard Rodgers on CD 2, recorded in Holland in October 1977, is being released here for the first time.

Arrangements are mostly by Max Harris, but those from the LP called Top Hat are by Nelson Riddle.
