Editorial Review:
These little known selections from Weill's extensive Broadway career--including the entire Act I, Scene 1 from his operetta The Firebrand of Florence--are unpopular for good reason. They lack the melodic brilliance of his more familiar material. The only memorable song is the familiar "There Never Was You," known for its lush vocal lines, moving sentiment, and ease of interpretation. Thomas Hampson excels in this material; his rich baritone resounds with vibrant overtones and crystal clear diction. In contrast, Elizabeth Futral has no affinity for Weill's music, singing with an unappealing huskiness and vibrato-burdened tone. Miles Kreuger's program notes provide a fascinating historical perspective of Weill's American career, and alone are worth the price of admission. --Barbara Eisner Bayer
