Notes & Reviews:

Here is a delightful tribute from two fine modern musicians to one of the most beloved (and extensively recorded) Australian bass-baritones of the early 20th century. Peter Dawson (1882-1961) was, in fact, considered the world's greatest baritone of his time, singing arias from great operas as well as popular songs of the day, and pieces nowadays which fall under the category of easy listening. Some accounts of Dawson's life and career speak of a repertoire of 2500 songs and more than thirteen million recordings sold. The first of these appeared in 1902 and he continued to record well into the 1950s, traversing a technology that commenced with wax cylinders and finished with the arrival of stereo. The artist on this CD, Gregory Yurisich, is one of today's leading baritones, with his great portrayals from the Verdi repertoire achieving critical acclaim. His performances have taken him to all the major opera houses of the world. Conductor David Lloyd-Jones is highly recognized as an expert on Russian and British composers, and has made numerous recordings of lesser-known works over the years to critical acclaim. And, yes, 'That Lucky Old Sun' is the same tune Frankie Laine had a big hit with back in 1949!
