Notes & Reviews:
The outstanding March 2015 production by Encores! brought the almost-forgotten show back to New York's mainstream stage for the first time since the original Broadway production closed in 1952. Because the original cast album had omitted so much of the music, the score was ripe for rediscovery and a brand new recording. Music Director Rob Berman leads the thirty member cast and thirty-one piece orchestra in this release which celebrates the scope and richness of Lerner and Loewe's exceptional score. From the propulsive opening number "I'm On My Way" through ruminatiev ballads like "I Talk to the Trees" and "Another Autumn", Lerner's lyrics achieve an easy vernacular language while remaining beautifully crafted.Notes & Reviews:
