Decca Classics recently released Carnival of the Animals, a very special collaboration between Academy Award-winning actor Olivia Colman, children's author Michael Morpurgo and the seven "extraordinarily talented" (Classic FM) Kanneh-Mason siblings – Isata, Braimah, Sheku, Konya, Jeneba, Aminata and Mariatu. Recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios, the release includes new poems written by War Horse author Morpurgo to accompany French composer Saint-Saëns' 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. 

In this Strad video, cellist Sheku, violinist Braimah, pianists Isata and Konya Kanneh-Mason and friends play the finale from the Saint-Saëns's Carnival. WATCH
