The second "Arbeat" album of our brilliant saxophonist and vocalist. The structure is similar to the previous one, in that it also includes two disks. But this time one of the CDs - with video material, with the musical film "ANNA & SAX" by Tatyana Koroleva (Anna's mom), and the second - with a cycle of five Anna miniatures under the general title "Little Moscow Garden" and the "Snow Falling On The Domes" suite .
Album reviewFor connoisseurs (and even admirers!) of the work of Anna Koroleva, this album is relatively long-awaited and unexpected. Anna, in addition to her basic (and very famous) jazz creations, as it turned out, composes, performs and records modern chamber music. But in this case, having recordered the phonogrammes, Anna almost lost the original tracks! The reason, alas, is banal - she entrusted editing and mixing of phonograms to non-professionals. But ... all is well that ends well!
The album "Little Moscow Garden" consists of:
In the recording of the album, besides Anna, two remarkable musicians took part: pianist Alexander Vershinin and cellist Denis Shapovalov. Also it is necessary to note the sound engineers - magicians Maria Sobolev and Andrey Levin, thanks to whom this record was, in fact, saved.
As a bonus, the limited deluxe edition contains a DVD with the film "Anna and Sax" (directed by Tatiana Koroleva), in two parts:
That is, the release came out universal: for connoisseurs, and for a wide taste, and for a collection, and as a rare gift of high quality of design and performance.
