 Beautiful Sondheim arrangements August 19, 2012 By M. James (Harker Heights, TX) See All My Reviews "I bought this title specifically for the strings-only version of "Send in the Clowns". It is beautifully arranged, with solo cello instead of the usual clarinet or flute. The other arrangements are worth hearing, too, with expert performances by the London Symphony Orchestra. The one thing that kept this CD from being a 5-star recording in my opinion is the rather cheesy use of harmonica in a couple of the arrangements. I realize this is "easy listening" music, but please don't try to turn an LSO recording into something more "folksy" for the masses." Report Abuse
