HASH(0x9a5b578c) su 5 stelle AN IMPROVED RELEASE OF ALW'S INTIMATE CHAMBER PIECE 14 dicembre 2005
Di Marijan Bosnar - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD
When "Aspects of love" premiered in April 1989 in London, wide audiences knew Andrew Lloyd Webber mostly by his big blockbuster musicals such as "Cats", "The Phantom of the opera" or "Evita. After the "Phantom", the composer decided to try something new, much in the same way he has done with "Cats" in the early 80-is after he decided to part ways with his lyricist Tim Rice. As the basis for his next musical he chose David Garnett's short novel of the same title.

The plot involves various love triangles and is as close to a soap opera as you can get in a musical. We follow a 17 year-old Englishman Alex, who is in love with an older French actress Rose Videle. They end up in the Spanish villa that belongs to Alex's uncle George, an elderly painter and writer. George in turn has an ongoing affair with a younger Italian sculptress Giulietta. George finds Rose and Alex in the villa and after Alex is called to the army, George and Rose begin living together, which at first Alex finds impossible to accept. Giulietta and Rose become quite friends, there is even a hint of a lesbian relationship between them. Even so, George and Rose get married. Some time has passed and Alex is out of the army and is reunited with George, Rose and their 14 year-old daughter Jenny in their villa in France. Jenny falls in love with Alex, something that a very old George, now depended solely on Jenny's love cannot agree to. Alex is torn between Rose and Jenny and soon George dies. At his funeral Alex meets Giulietta and they are instantly drawn to one another. Alex leaves with her, although Rose pleaded him not to leave her alone.

As you can see, the plot isn't quite as simple as it might appear. For this project Lloyd Webber decided to use a much smaller, almost chamber orchestra, however, that isn't a drawback. This is his most romantic score and the orchestra fits it perfectly. The music itself is full of beautiful and intimate love melodies, especially when the orchestra takes the lead in its interludes; you can almost see the nature and the scenery of the plot. The most popular songs from this show are "Love changes everything" sung by Alex and "Anything but lonely" sung by Rose. Of course, there are other catchy tunes, my favorite being "Seeing is believing", a romantic duet between Alex and Rose; "The first man you remember", sung sweetly by George to his young daughter Jenny; "Mermaid song", a shy duet between Alex and Jenny and a big ensemble number with a notable drums sequence called "Hand me the wine and the dice". It's important to note, however, that many parts of this musical is dialogue that is sung instead of being spoken, and this is the main difference between Aspects and the big Webber shows. This means that Aspects isn't meant to be played as background music while one does the dishes or cleans the house. The best way to listen it, for the first time anyway, is with headphones and paying attention to the libretto. It probably won't grab you after the first listen; it needs a bit of an effort, but after a couple of times you'll grow to like it for sure. Don Black's lyrics remain pleasing as ever.

The casting was done very well. Michael Ball, who made his name as Marius in Les Miserables, plays Alex. As always, his voice is a gem by itself. He was a perfect choice. Ann Crumb as Rose and Kathleen Rowe McAllen as Giulietta have similar voices. Kevin Colson makes you think he IS George; his voice and pronunciation sounds exactly as an elderly English gentleman should.

One of the merits of this new release is the fact that the two main problems of the previous one have been rectified: the sound quality, which was awful on the 1989 release, is superb here; due to the fact the CDs are digitally remastered. Likewise, the new libretto comes with the normal-sized font, unlike the previous one, which should also have included a magnifying glass if it was meant to be read. The CDs are also neatly packed in a slip case.

Aspects of love may not be Lloyd Webber's best known work, but a true fan of his will certainly enjoy and appreciate it.

Kevin Colson makes you think he IS George; his voice and pronunciation sounds exactly as an elderly English gentleman should.

I have only two complaints and they concern the CD package. The musical is almost complete, over 70 minutes on both discs and a full libretto is included in the booklet. However, the font size in it is so small that you need a magnifying glass in order to read it. I had to download it from the net and print it separately. Also, the sound quality is a big disappointment; I had to increase volume on mi Hi-fi in order to hear it properly. I wished that the publishers would be more careful about these things. Luckily, all this problems have been rectified in the new digitally remastered edition also available here at Amazon, so I would suggest buying that instead of this old release.

Aspects of love may not be Lloyd Webber's best known work, but a true fan of his will certainly enjoy and appreciate it.

HASH(0x9a5b5c18) su 5 stelle Love Changes Everything 6 febbraio 2002
Di Z. Yang - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD
After the spectacular rock musical of Jesus Christ, the extravaganza of Cats, and the glorious operatic Phantom, Andrew Lloyd Webber surprised the world with his down-to-earth "Aspects of Love", a musical adapted from the novel by David Garnett. The unusualness is also reflected in the music. What we hear is an intimate and rather contrasting music score played on a smaller orchestra - a gentle and elegant chamber piece.

The show is about love. The relationships woven among the five main characters: Alex, Rose, George, Jenny and Giulietta, is complicated enough to confuse the audience, and yet, with Don Black/Charles Hart's witty lyrics and Andrew Lloyd Webber's stroke of genius, the story is unfolded methodically. The musical is opened, uniquely, with one male soloist (Michael Ball) singing "Love Changes Everything", which distills the essence of the show. While Andrew Lloyd Webber wrapped the well-knitted plot with his intertwining music, he didn't forget bringing out half dozen of enchanting songs, which can also be performed singly in concert. Besides "Love Changes Everything", there are "Seeing is Believing", "Anything But Lonely", "The First Man You Remember", "Mermaid Song", "There is More to Love"...... The melodies simply strike you to the heart the first time you hear them and will stay there for the rest of your life.

The cast is wonderful. It feels like character Alex was written for Michael Ball. I don't know if it is Michael who made Alex so charming or it is Alex who made Michael so irresistible. His fully voiced, straight from the belly B-flat at the end of Act II alone is already one magic of the show, and yet, he offers more: his vibrato and his croon, his passion and his tenderness. I think Ann Crumb is very successful in creating Rose. She has a strong and beautiful voice and her acting is convincing and truthful. Character Rose sometimes might not be likable or even hateful, but she is very human and she is real. She is a woman with desire, weakness, and sincerity. "Anything But Lonely" tells everything about her: bitterness, loss, unyieldingness, and perhaps more...

It doesn't matter what the critics had said about the show or if it enjoyed box office success, this show is an immortal work of art. It deals with the very basic emotion of human being - love. For me this is a winner because it deeply reaches the human hearts and encompasses the reality of aspects of love with an immense delicacy. After all life is real, and so is love.

HASH(0x9a5b5f9c) su 5 stelle EXQUISITE & UNDER-RATED MASTERPIECE! 30 agosto 2005

I will never understand why this show was never the hit it so deserved to be. It was richly complex, deeply profound, and touched me to the core, staying with me, still, through the years. Perhaps it was too daring for the narrow, provincial American mind.

Much has been said here, but to truly appreciate the music, I think you had to have seen the original show live.

I was fortunate enough to see the original cast at the Kennedy Center in D.C. 1993 (or so) and will NEVER forget it. It is WAY up there at the top of my favorites of all Broadway shows, and I have seen almost ALL of Andrew Lloyd Webber's shows at least once-- in both D.C. and NYC-- since the beginning.

If ASPECTS OF LOVE ever comes around again, don't miss it!

HASH(0x9a5bb0f0) su 5 stelle Beautiful music, just not enough of it! 10 marzo 2002
Di burghtenor - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD
In 1989, Andrew Lloyd Webber followed up his mega-hit, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, with ASPECTS OF LOVE. Not surprisingly, after the stupendous success of PHANTOM, ASPECTS was a disappointment to most critics. However, when considered by itself, this musical has lots of merits.

THE BOOK:
ASPECTS has a complex plot, which may come as a surprise to those familiar with some of Webber's other shows such as CATS and STARLIGHT EXPRESS. The main characters are all well drawn, even though this is a completely through-sung show. Without giving away the whole plot, here's the basic gist: 17-year-old soldier Alex has a crush on struggling actress Rose, who is probably in her mid-30s. He persuades her to spend two weeks with him at the villa of his uncle, George. Rose is taken with George, the charming 60-something widower, and two years later becomes his wife, even befriending George's former mistress, the young sculptress Giulietta. A dozen years later, Alex comes back to live at the villa. George and Rose's daughter, Jenny, falls haplessly in love with her cousin Alex. Over the course of two years, Alex (now in his 30s) begins to return the affection of the 15-year-old girl. Things come to a head as the elderly George, in poor health, becomes enraged at Alex's advances. The ensuing events force Alex to choose between the three women he loves: the older Rose, the mysterious Guilietta (the only woman in the show who is Alex's age!), or the innocent Jenny. Of course, like every other Webber musical I know, it starts with a stupid prologue of "What happens after the end?"

The book is clever in comparing and contrasting events that happen to different characters throughout the course of time. We watch with fascination as Jenny takes Alex on a picnic in the same hills on which he and Rose dined a decade-and-a-half before. George, who faints when Rose dons a gown he designed for his first wife, is entranced when Jenny makes a grand entrance in the same dress years later. My favorite parallel is the opening of the two acts, both set on the backstages of theaters, the first play being a flop, and the second play being a smash.

However, the story also has a "soap opera" sense to it. Everyone seems to have money to spare, and the only person who we ever see working is an actress. It also seems unrealistic that Jenny's parents would take a teenage girl -- who converses with grownups about Picasso and is romantically involved with a man twice her age - to the circus for her birthday. Rose's final song, "Anything But Lonely," is powerful, but I can't decide whether her reaction to the events that predicate this song is believable or not.

THE MUSIC:
Sir Andrew has a gift for writing beautiful melodies. Many of the tunes in this show are breathtakingly gorgeous, including "The First Man You Remember," "Other Pleasures," "A Memory of a Happy Moment," "Seeing Is Believing," "Love Changes Everything," "Chanson d'enfance," "The Mermaid Song," and "Love Changes Everything." There isn't a bad song in the show, and Webber invents several melodies that are great for dialogue. Webber enhances the comparisons and contrasts by using the same thematic material at the parallel moments. However, for a musical that's two-and-a-half hours long, 15 songs and some recycled conversation melodies aren't nearly enough. I often find myself singing along with a song only to accidentally veer off into lyrics from one of the other times it is used in the show. The most egregious abuse of recycling has to be lifting the "Hand Me the Wine and Dice" melody from Act II and using it as the "Second Orchestral Interlude" in Act I, ruining the surprise of such a sudden, bacchanalian turn of events in Act II.

THE RECORDING:
This recording is virtually complete, although a few minor cuts have been made. The leads are all wonderful singers -- especially Michael Ball as Alex -- AND actors - especially Kevin Colson, exuding charm as George. The women playing Rose (Ann Crumb), Guilietta (Kathleen Rowe McAllen), and Jenny (Diana Morrison) are all quite good, too.

SUMMARY:
I think ASPECTS OF LOVE is worth purchasing, but it's hard to weigh having the completeness of the plot against having to listen to so many recycled melodies. I listen to this several times a year, but it is by no means a "must have."
