Classical Broadway is a wonderful and fascinating journey into concert hall works by four of Broadway’s most tuneful composers. For Cy Coleman, we have New York Sketches, three delightful Gershwinesque preludes for piano. For John Kander we have his beautiful and moving settings of Three Poems by Lucile Adler. For Harvey Schmidt we have the delectable Monteargentario: Seven Dances for Solo Piano, and for Charles Strouse we have his marvelous String Quartet No. 1 and Sonata for Two Pianos. While not theater music, these selections are suffused with each of their musical sensibilities and melodic invention. The album is a must for any fan of these four amazing Broadway composers.

Classical Broadway was originally released on Bay Cities in 1992 and has been out of print for over twenty years now. At the time of the recording, all these pieces were world premiere recordings and they remain the only commercial recordings of these pieces. For this long overdue reissue we have done a new and fresh mastering.

Featuring soprano Carol Vaness, pianists Seth Rudetsky, Scot Woolley, Emily Witt, Warren Jones and Harvey Schmidt, and the Korngold Quartet. Produced by Bruce Kimmel, with liner notes by award-winning journalist Jon Burlingame. -KRITZERLAND Cy Coleman
