Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for "Best Classical
Crossover Album."
Given the success of his Gramophone award-winning disc of Rodgers & Hammerstein songs, Bryn Terfel probably had free rein in planning his next "crossover" project. Instead of a composer or a composer-lyricist team, he chose lyricist Alan Jay Lerner, as set by Frederick Loewe, Charles Strouse, Burton Lane, and Kurt Weill.
The Lerner-Loewe collaborations are mostly well-known: 'Brigadoon,' 'My Fair Lady,' and 'Camelot' were among the most successful musicals of the post-WWII era, and many of their songs became successful standards. Terfel gives us Albert Doolittle's raucous production numbers from 'My Fair Lady' as well as Freddie's much
Read more more romantic "On the Street Where You Live" alongside a varied selection of tunes both familiar and unknown.
As always, Terfel's robust voice changes to suit its situations, from the hushed sweetness of "Little Prince" to the butch swagger of "I Was Born under a Wandrin' Star." Although the opening words of "Camelot" at the start of the disc are eerily evocative of Richard Burton on the Broadway cast recording, Terfel makes each piece his own, even to an "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever" in which the shadow of Barbra Streisand is absent.
