Notes and Editorial Reviews
McGlinn-who was just 55 when he died-was not just a celebrated conductor, but also an invaluable archivist of American musical theater. This unique set boasts complete recordings of Kern/Hammerstein's Show Boat (1927), Porter's Anything Goes (1934), Berlin's Annie Get Your Gun (1946), Lerner/Loewe's Brigadoon and Porter's Kiss Me Kate (1948), all made under the direction of McGlinn. You'll also hear three compendium CDs of show material by Kern, Weill, Youmans and Bernstein and overture collections from Porter, Gershwin and Kern, all using the original orchestrations and arrangements. Rare material cut from the original productions and a CD-ROM of synopses and librettos round out this beautiful Broadway box!
