Notes & Reviews:

As a composer of film scores during Hollywood's Golden Age, Franz Waxman has few peers. Virtually unknown is his output of songs written for Weimar-era cabarets and revues and later, as a political emigr in Paris and Hollywood, songs created for an astonishing array of films both classic and obscure. By turns sentimental and satiric, these undiscovered gems and rarities are brought to lustrous life by internationally-acclaimed bass-baritone Robert Osborne in collaboration with pianist Richard Gordon, who were given access to this material by the composer's heir, John Waxman. This welcome collection brings to light an unjustly neglected aspect of the composer's already esteemed work and will establish Waxman as a first-rate composer of songs.
