If you weren't fortunate enough to see this production in London you can at least enjoy the vocal beauty of it with this very complete two disc set.

The poignancy of the central relationship between Dot and Georges is much more in evidence here than in the Broadway version , the orchestrations are beautiful and the singing wonderful.

An absolute must for all Sondheim fans and a good place to start for those who aren't quite sure yet.

I adore this version (more that OBC). It lets the content speak and especially Jenna Russell is sublime.

Good cd but 4 stars because it didn't have the cast I expected and there was no description of the actual cast pre sale

4.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable New Recording 31 May 2006
By Matt Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're reading this, the key question you're probably asking yourself is, "Is it worth getting this if I already own the original cast album?" The answer is yes. Not only is this disc enjoyable on it's own, but the differences between the recordings make the OCR more interesting when you return to it.

One of the interesting things about the album is the accents. As was the case in the original production, although Act 1 takes place in France, nobody uses a French accent. Because this is an English production, the actors use English accents for Act one, then switch to American accents for Act two (which takes place in America.) This adds a nice layer of contrast between the two time periods of the show. More importantly, the use of accents to convey class and stature brings a whole new dimension to the show. The contrast between George's crisp tones and Dot's light cockney accent help illuminate the relationship between them.

The only shortcoming on this disc is "Putting it Together," which never feels as nimble as it should be. On the flip side, the vocal harmonies throughout the album are wonderfully recorded. Songs like Sunday feel richer than they did before and, in the two leads soar in the climactic moment when Sondheim finally has them sing in harmony.

All told, this is yet another exquisitely recorded and packaged album from PS Classics, the label that seems to be the go-to guys for Sondheim recordings. It's no wonder--the production quality on this and other discs is every bit on par with the quality of Sondheim's scores.

If you haven't seen or heard the show before and you're wondering if you should invest in any version of the show, I would also recommend giving Sunday a listen. It may take time for the score to grow on you, but in the end this is one of Sondheim's most accessible scores (right behind Sweeney Todd and Into the Woods.) You might want to buy the 2006 recording and the DVD of the original Broadway cast to enjoy the best of both worlds. That way you can enjoy the wonderful staging on the DVD and also get the benefit of having the more complete recording of the score (which features generous helpings of dialogue and, as a bonus track, the full version of a clever song that was trimmed down to a small snippet while the show was being work shopped.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sondheim's Greatest got even greater 13 July 2006
By BC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When I heard this show was being recorded again, I had my doubts. In my mind, nothing could top the 1984 recording of Patinkin and Peters in this groundbreaking musical, one of my favorite musicals (and cast recordings) of all time. And of course, so many times that a London Sondheim recording is made, it just sounds like a cheesey and/or overdone: Follies, Company, the 1978 Night Music, Pacific Overtures to name a few (only the 1994 RSC Night Music stands out as a superb recording).

But the Brits have produced a new CD that is aurally STUNNING. The (reduced) orchestra sounds great, the singers bring new colors and interpretations to every line, and in addition, their musicianship is unequalled, rhythms and stacatti and punctuated, pianos and fortes are thrilling... the score comes to life in a way that I have never heard it before.

There is a great deal of dialogue recording as well, which is almost vital for a show where music and text are so tightly bound. At first, hearing these French personages talk and sing in various UK accents is jarring and sounds wrong, but then you realize that on Broadway, no one spoke in a french accent either. The accents in the London version turn out to have a great effect, drawing lines between the varied classes presented on stage.

I won't dissect the entire CD, because it will only delay you from purchasing it! Buy it now...you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars quite wonderful 3 Jun. 2006
By Eric Kildorn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Quite wonderful, to my surprise. I say "to my surprise" not because, as many of my friends have said, the memory of Mandy and Bernadette is so strong. (My memory of them is very good, but not so strong that it doesn't allow for other interpretations.) I was mostly surprised how splendid this recording is because I've seen several London casts take on Sondheim shows, and have generally been unimpressed. (Some of the productions have been downright dreadful.) But this cast is strong, the orchestrations are lovely and restrained, and the flow of the CD itself is beautiful. You get not only a good sense of the strengths of the show, but of the merits of this new production, which seems to prize George's relationship to Dot and Marie and his mother as much as it does George's relationship to his art. When Daniel Evans sings, "George misses Marie," you believe it, and when Jenna Russell tells him later that he gave her "so much" (with a perceptible, audible ache in her voice), you believe her. And later still, when the great Gay Soper (whom I saw do Side by Side many moons ago) asks, "Has it changed much?", you really find yourself awaiting George's response. I could list a couple of things I don't like ("We Do Not Belong" sounds a little restrained, the Chromolume a little cheeky), but I finished the recording thinking, "I'd like to see this production."

3.0 out of 5 stars Won't make you forget the original 21 Jun. 2006
By Crispee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The 1985 cast recording of this show was alot shorter but made better by stronger acting and sheer brilliance. This recording at least makes more of the show available on CD but since there is a DVD out -- that is not really much of an issue.

I have a feeling this show really needs to be seen rather than heard. Most of the performances are strangely robotic -- thinking more George than Dot. While Mandy Patinkin brought forth the inner demons and drive of the artist -- here it is more of a bland read-through rather than a heartfelt performance.

The ensemble and music are brilliant though and it is worth getting if you are a true fan. Just don't expect to throw your previous recording in the trash.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comparing Broadway with the London Cast 21 Jun. 2006
By JLF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first became familiar with Sunday in the Park from the Original Broadway Cast Recording. It is my favorite, and consider as the best (together with Sweeney Todd). It is indeed nice to revisit Sunday with this version. Here is the comparison:

(1) Arrangement and orchestration: It will be like comparing apples and oranges. If you go for a fuller orchestration, go with the broadway cast. It is very nimble, and quick. However, if you go for intimacy, definitely go with this one. As oppose to sweeney, where the material is calling for a fuller sound, a small group of musicians works very well. The use of solo instruments to highlight some phrases and ideas is very good. Especially on some very intimate songs like "We do not belong together" and move on. Also, the chorus acts like an orchestra. Very good

(2) Dot: Bernadette Peters is very good in the original cast. It would indeed be very intimidating for any actress to play Dot, much more preserve her version with B Peters' version still out there. Still, Dot here is very good and tackled here solos differently. Also, the delivery of the lines is clearer (B Peters sometimes is difficult to understand), the accent is crisp and very appropriate. the Dot here is very good.

(3) George: It is still Mandy Patinkin. the confidence, confusion, of George was portrayed very well by Patinkin. He created a very distinct George. Very precise. In this version, george is sometimes drowned out by his "creation" , especially in the o season. In the original cast, Patinkin is in control. So, his confusion and attempt to still maintain order is more heartfelt.

(4) Chorus: This one is better. the original cast in a way relied too much on the orchestra. here, it is more of vocal work. Very good. Accents are definitely much better .

(5) Pacing: the additional lines are very much welcome...It will definitely help those who were not able to see the video understand the show (especially the lyrics of "Lesson #8).
