5.0 out of 5 stars My house is alive with the sound of music! 28 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
Listening to the CD brings back memories of a brilliant production at the London Palladium. It's great to hear all the songs from the original stage show with excellent orchestration. Connie and the whole cast are fantastic, especially the children who can both sing in perfect harmony and yodel!

5.0 out of 5 stars This will 'blow you away'! 4 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is as close to perfection as it gets. Obviously recorded when the cast were still on an enormous high, this recording is nothing short of a masterpiece! Never have I ever heard such fresh and fervent performances on an Original Cast Album of anything!

Number by number, it just seems to get better and better until by the time I reached Lesley Garrett's definitive recording of 'Climb Every Mountain' I had 'lost it' completely and was in floods of tears of pure delight!

I said that this was as close to perfection as it gets which implies that there are minor blemishes and indeed, I quibble with both the arrangement and the performance of 'No Way to Stop It'. To me this is a crucial moment when the Captain realises that he will never be able to agree with the Baroness' political views and it is the final crack in his relationship with her, opening the way for him to propose to Maria. It is vital, particularly on an album where we don't have the rest of the story that his revulsion for the Nazis is made clear by his sarchasm of the last verse - sadly, there is little or no trace of this in Alexander Hanson's voice. A minor point, may be but a valid one, I think.

Much has been written in the press about Connie Fisher and there is little that I can add. A great new star is born and this record confirms it!

The children are excellent and the orchestra (and orchestrations) are terrific. A well voiced ensemble completes what is the most exiting album to come my way ....Ever (and I really mean that!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 4 May 2007
By L. Drew
Format:Audio CD
Wow if you haven't seen the show then you definately should its as the title says 'AMAZING'! the singing is unbelievable and really does send tingles down your spine. The CD is great but nothing compares to the live version. Definately buy this if your a Sound of Music fan!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Neither love it or hate it... 29 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
I recieved this cast recording, along with the 1981 cast recording (with Petula Clark) as christmas presents. As I had recently seen SoM on tour with Connie Fisher, I was looking forward to re-living the music from the comfort of my own home. However, after listening to the 81 cast album, my expectations became even higher... but this cd was a bit of a let down in all honesty. The orchestra has its moments of beauty, as does connie, but she seems to be whispering a lot of the time (I understand that she does suffer from a throat illness). Also, the arrangement of some of the songs have been changed ever so slightly, but it seemed a little out of the ordinary after listening to the other version. All in all, I believe for the price, it is well worth it... but in my eyes it will never beat the 1981 cast recording... good try... just not quite there:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Connie Fisher is THE Maria! 7 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Sweet sounding, pretty, Connie Fisher was my favourite to win the BBC contest. I missed her original run in SofM in London, but she has been touring in 2009. I was lucky to catch her at the Mayflower, Southampton, in October, where she was as enchanting as ever. The CD captures it all and is a permanent record.

Format:Audio CD
This was an enjoyable CD to listen to, and having been at the London show, it was good to hear the same cast singing again.
