When "Aspects of love" premiered in April 1989 in London, wide audiences knew Andrew Lloyd Webber mostly by his big blockbuster musicals such as "Cats", "The Phantom of the opera" or "Evita. After the "Phantom", the composer decided to try something new, much in the same way he has done with "Cats" in the early 80-is after he decided to part ways with his lyricist Tim Rice. As the basis for his next musical he chose David Garnett's short novel of the same title.

The plot involves various love triangles and is as close to a soap opera as you can get in a musical. We follow a 17 year-old Englishman Alex, who is in love with an older French actress Rose Videle. They end up in the Spanish villa that belongs to Alex's uncle George, an elderly painter and writer. George in turn has an ongoing affair with a younger Italian sculptress Giulietta. George finds Rose and Alex in the villa and after Alex is called to the army, George and Giulietta begin living together, which at first Alex finds impossible to accept. Giulietta and Rose become quite friends, there is even a hint of a lesbian relationship between them. Even so, George and Rose get married. Some time has passed and Alex is out of the army and is reunited with George, Rose and their 14 year-old daughter Jenny in their villa in France. Jenny falls in love with Alex, something that a very old George, now depended solely on Jenny's love cannot agree to. Alex is torn between Rose and Jenny and soon George dies. At his funeral Alex meets Giulietta and they are instantly drawn to one another. Alex leaves with her, although Rose pleaded him not to leave her alone.

As you can see, the plot isn't quite as simple as it might appear.

This is my favourite Lloyd Webber musical - it's story is beautiful and the music is both brave and ground breaking. The story of 17 year old Alex who falls in love with stage star Rose and how their entwined love affair crosses throughout both their lives touching them and everyone around them - it is passionate and touching. I bought the CD boxset last year after owning it on cassette for many years and losing it in a house move and it was like coming home listening to it again.

There are a few myths about this musical. For a start, it was actually pretty successful on the West End, running for 3 years (even when original star Michael Ball had left). It flopped on Broadway but then the story was never going to please Broadway.

The story, though written in 1955 (the show is based on a novella), is pretty scandalous: in Montpelier, Rose, a French actress (Ann Crumb) seduces seventeen-year-old Englishman Alex (Michael Ball) and they run off to Pau together. Their explosive affair breaks up and Alex leaves for the army. Twelve years later he returns to find that Rose has married his roue uncle George (Kevin Colson) and they have had a child, Jenny (Diana Morrison). As Jenny matures, Alex finds himself lusting after her, much to the horror of her obsessive father.

A tale of incestuous attraction and serial adultery does not seem like typical Andrew Lloyd Webber fare, but there are some ALW themes, for example, the conflict between safe love and forbidden love; the power of obsession; love with an artist that cannot be tied down (there's more than a shade of Sarah Brightman there). After the grandeur of Phantom, Webber wanted a smaller, more intimate musical. Some argue that Aspects of Love is ALW trying to be like Sondheim, but I disagree. There's a lot of beautiful melodies here. Melody was not Sondheim's strongest point. Sometimes he did write very nice music, but he doesn't evoke a period or emotion in the way that Webber's music does. Listening to Aspects of Love, you feel that you are in the French countryside in the 1940's, amongst the bohemians. For example, 'Parlez-Vous Francais?

This is one of the best of ALW's, a pretty much perfect piece. Not everyone liked the original production because there was no great set to watch. For those days it was a relatively simple production. I went several times to see this show and caught the original line up. Michael Ball was and is on the recording excellent and he had just the right voice for the music written for Alex, something that to me has been a problem in later casting and other productions. Ann Crumb is the definitive Rose, there has never been another since that caught the essence of the character so perfectly. The nearest being Kathryn Evans she was excellent. The cast jelled so well and drew you into their story. This is an excellent representation of the show and I doubt any version on disc or stage will better it. A must buy!!

This Lloyd Webber, Black and Hart collaboration is one of the most enjoyable musicals of recent years. This cast recording sees Michael Ball in his most renowned role as Alex, the young soldier trying to negotiate his way through the trials and tribulations of love, never quite managing to shake off his past. The story is complex, but well handled by the team and the music is rich and heartfelt; from the simplistic 'mermaid' duet between Alex and his young cousin, to the vibrant and complicated harmonies of 'hand me the wine and the dice'. Not forgetting, of course, the most famous and powerful song 'Love Changes Everything' which takes on a whole new meaning within the context of the show. Listen and enjoy.
