I enjoyed the recording but not as much as I thought I would. I bought the CD because of Hayley Westenra but I barely heard her. It sounds likes she disappears when singing duet with a male vocal. Her voice gets overpowered by her male duet when the notes rise. This is the case with Vittorio Griggolo and Andrea Bocelli. I still believe this is a keeper because of the beautiful melodies and fine orchestration.

I LOVE West Side Story, its one of my favourite musicals, but this recording did nothing for me.

Westenra's voice, although technically excellent, is bland, there was just no 'spark', no real 'ooomph'!

Griggolo has an outstanding voice, and is much better matched to the part of Tony than Westenra is to Maria. But i still couldnt help feeling a little underwhelmed by his performance.

Overall, i just didnt feel the passion in this recording. To my ears, it sounded cold and impersonal, and the voices of Westenra and Griggolo never blended fully. Maybe too many mikes were used - it sounds very much like each performer sang their part in a different location, both to each other and to the orchestra. Not a winner for me im afraid

However, the AMAZING score hasnt aged a day!

This is an excellent recording which I've listened to many times and sung along with. Well worth the price as it was very reasonable.
