Sondheim: A Celebration at Carnegie Hall [Highlights]

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
This album is an abridged version of a two-CD recording of a benefit concert for Carnegie Hall performed at the hall on June 10, 1992 and featuring the American Theatre Orchestra, conducted by Paul Gemignani, supporting a variety of soloists doing songs written by Stephen Sondheim for Broadway musicals and films. As several anthologies of Sondheim's work and tributes to him have been recorded in the past, the organizers weren't able to find much new in the composer's catalog, and they have settled for sometimes gimmicky arrangements of his familiar songs. Nevertheless, many of the performances are strong, and the stars are many: Glenn Close "Send in the Clowns", ...

As several anthologies of Sondheim's work and tributes to him have been recorded in the past, the organizers weren't able to find much new in the composer's catalog, and they have settled for sometimes gimmicky arrangements of his familiar songs. Nevertheless, many of the performances are strong, and the stars are many: Glenn Close "Send in the Clowns", Madeline Kahn "I'm Not Getting Married Today", Patti Lupone "Being Alive", Liza Minnelli the sole new song, "Back in Business", and Bernadette Peters "Not a Day Goes By" are standouts, but the cream of Broadway is represented. Also, it's worth noting that, while the album may be a disappointment to die-hard Sondheim fans, newcomers not familiar with this material may well be bowled over by its quality. Sondheim is Broadway's top contemporary composer, and this album demonstrates that as well as any. Also available as a video, which actually works better, given that some of the numbers have strong visual elements.

    What Every Sondheim Fan Needs

    I bought this on a whim the first time. Loaned it to a friend 2 YEARS AGO and haven't seen it since. Keep your hands on your copy!!! Madeline Kahn is wonderful, and who thought Glenn Close could sing!?
