5.0 out of 5 stars NB Stavisky soundtrack included, 17 April 2011

This review is from: Follies In Concert (Audio CD)
This is a recording of the concerts that took place at Avery Fisher Hall in September 1985. Barbara Cook, Lee Remick, George Hearn and Mandy Patinkin played the main four characters with Elaine Strich, Carol Burnett and Liliane Montevecchi doing sterling cameo songs. The purpose of the concert was to record the complete score of Stephen Sondheim's musical Follies as the original Broadway cast recording had been incomplete. That is one good reason for having this recording. The other is the performances of all the contributors. Barbara Cook provides the definitive version of Losing My mind which is reason alone to own this recording and I am very keen on Carol Burnett's I'm Stll Here.

What is very important about this two CD set is that the soundtrack to Alain Resnais's film Stavisky by Stephen Sondheim can be found at the end of the second CD of Follies In Concert. This is the only source available of the movie soundtrack. Sondheim's score is charming and written in pastiche style to fit the Thirties period of the film.

Track 9, Arlette By Day, was originally written by Sondheim as 'Bring On The Girls' and cut from Follies

Track 18, Operetta, was originally written by Sondheim as 'The World's Full Of Girls' and cut from Follies.

Track 21, Salon at The Claridge #2, was originally written by Sondheim as 'Who Could Be Blue' and cut from Follies.

You can find the lyrics to these three songs in Sondheim's book 'Finishing The Hat' and then sing along to the music!
