Exploring the beauty of the viola and piano repertoire together, violist Marc Sabbah and pianist Eliane Reyes are embarking on a journey to record their first album together.
Duo Sabbah-Reyes is raising money for their 1st CD Album on GoFundMe.com.
On the disc we will be playing works by Robert Schumann, Manuel de Falla, Henri Vieuxtemps and perhaps a few surprises. The theme of our disc is the Romantic Era of viola.
We will be creating a disc with the Swiss label Prospero. However, there will be recording costs, photography costs and editing costs to cover as well as production and manufacturing.
We hope you will donate to help us create this exciting disc and be the first to enjoy it.
