Overview

La Luna [B&N Exclusive Version]

After conquering the disparate worlds of pop, musical theater, and opera, Sarah Brightman looks heavenward on La Luna. Enamored of the mysteries of the moon and inspired by the many composers and poets who have been similarly enchanted, the British soprano and her trusted producer, Frank Peterson, have crafted a stunning song cycle. The former Phantom of the Opera star effortlessly segues between works by immortal classical composers such as Beethoven ("Figlio Perduto"), Rachmaninov ("How Fair This Spot"), Handel ("Solo con Te"), and Dvorák ("La Luna"); songs by contemporary writers such as Ennio Morricone ("La Califfa") and J. M. Cano ("Hijo de la Luna"); and traditional folk tunes like "Scarborough Fair." This album proves that Brightman can sing just about anything: Her amethyst-clear voice adds an equally luminous shine to the trip-hop ballad "This Love," the soaring yet danceable "Here with Me," and a late-night take on Billie Holiday's "Gloomy Sunday." With the artistic triumph of La Luna, Brightman becomes a celestial songstress for the ages. This special edition, exclusive to Barnes & Noble, includes the bonus track "Heaven is Here," not previously available in the United States.
