Stage & Screen Classical. Show/Musical Big Band Concerto Orchestral Symphony.

Studio 1, Abbey Road Recording Studios, London, England. EMI Classics, EMI Music Distribution. Wonderful Town, Leonard Bernstein 's second musical with lyricists Betty Comden and Adolph Green, was an agreeable adaptation of the engaging play My Sister Eileen that allowed the songwriters an opportunity to satirize the popular music and artistic trends of the 1930s. It was also a star vehicle for Rosalind Russell, who had starred in the nonmusical film version, My Sister Eileen, in 1942

EMI Classics, EMI Music Distribution 56753.

The strong cast on this 1999 studio recording is every bit as impressive. Conductor Simon Rattle gives the album a cracking pace which never slackens or drags. A top studio album which is enlivened no end by its perfectly-realised cast. 4 people found this helpful.
