From the back album cover:
natural ability to make music takes her over to the
classical field with extraordinary ease. It's clear that
she loves these songs. In her sensitive, straightforward,
and enormously appealing performance, she has given us a
very special musical experience."--Leonard Bernstein
From the Liner Notes:
"When one of the greatest popular singers of our time records an album of classical songs, the result has to be something unique. And indeed it is. For her millions of fans, what Barbra has done here will come as a surprise and revelation. Without the slightest sacrifice of her own originality, she brings to these songs a flavor that is hers alone. The freshness, the feel, the inflection are all strictly Barbra's; yet we hear these songs with as much naturalness and expressiveness as their composers could have wished for.
Barbra has been wanting to sing classical songs for a long time, and in choosing Claus Ogerman to work with she shows once again her unfailing ability to do things the right way. In conducting, arranging and accompanying her, Claus provides the musicianship that completely meets the exacting demands of this very special project.
Barbra is one of the most
versatile talents in the business, but this record reveals
that her versatility and her gifts are even greater than
anyone has ever guessed."
