The brand-new Kanneh-Mason album, their first as a family, was recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios. The release includes new poems written by War Horse author Morpurgo to accompany French composer Saint-Saens’ beloved musical suite “Carnival of the Animals.” The poems are read by the author himself, joined by The Favourite actor Colman, and guest musicians complete the ensemble for the suite.
