I'm always slightly nervous of pop/rock-classical cross-overs, but Myleene Klass manages to avoid to pitfalls that have tripped up artists such as Bond and Vanessa Mae. Sensibly, the dance rythms are kept to an absolute minimum, and the result is some surprisingly sensitive interpretations.
Her current single Toccata avoids the bombastic approach used by any number of artists from Sky onwards, and is a good example of both the nature of the album and her playing style, which is fluid and accomplished. The classical version of Moonlight Sonata given as a bonus track at the end of the album demonstrates that she really can play and deserved this opportunity to re-launch her career.
On the whole this album is likely to appeal to classical music lovers far more than pop fans, but it is hoped that she may convert some of the latter in the process.
