Something’s Gotta Give / Keenlyside
Catalog: CHAN 10838
KEENLYSIDE STRALLEN BBC CONCERT ORCHESTRA ABBELL, SCARLETT STRALLEN
To this day, music from classic Broadway and Hollywood musicals continues to enjoy immense popularity with audiences and performers alike. + Here Simon Keenlyside, one of the world’s most charismatic and sought-after operatic baritones, presents Something’s Gotta Give, an album devoted to songs from musicals – songs that require every bit as much attention to text and interpretation as Lieder, and often the same mastery of vocal technique as operatic arias. + Scarlett Strallen, a regular presence on West End and Broadway stages, partners Keenlyside in duets and sings two numbers on her own. + They are joined by David Charles Abell conducting the BBC Concert Orchestra in original orchestral arrangements, a number of which have been specially restored for this recording.
