Joan Sutherland Sings Noel Coward
Josef Johns | Rochester, New York United States | 11/03/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"
Excerpt from Noel Coward's diary:
Wednesday 6 July 1966. "On Tuesday I recorded in the morning with Joan Sutherland. I had very little to do. I merely spoke bits of the verses of 'Secret Heart'
and 'Dearest Love'. Her voice really is incredible and to hear her singing my music with a big orchestra was a rare treat." The orchestra he refers to was conducted by Richard Bonynge and the arrangements of Coward's songs are unabashedly lush~an ideal framework for the voice of Joan Sutherland who in 1966 was in her prime. For those accustomed to his witty revue songs these selections provide a more balanced picture of his talents as a composer.
Conversation Piece, Bitter Sweet, Operette, After The Ball, and Pacific 1860 are represented in an album which, to this listener, was buried treasure.
