Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant
Label: San Diego Symphony
Released: November 15, 2011
Catalog Num: SDS-1001

Upon commissioning Lucas Richman to write a work based on Mr. Prelutsky's book, the San Diego Symphony's premiere of Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant in 2009 was met with such an overwhelming response that funds were secured to record the work. Once it was learned that Jack Prelutsky had already written new poems to Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals, the orchestra decided that it was the perfect companion piece for this recording. World-renowned pianists, Jon Kimura Parker and Orli Shaham team up as the piano duo for this brand new recording of the classic work. The release was recorded by Grammy®-winning recording engineer, Robert Friedrich of Five/Four Productions, and produced by Erica Brenner, both formerly with the award-winning Telarc label.
