Golden Apple    
Posted on Friday, February 20, 2015

Back in 1994, Tommy made the rounds of all the labels in town, trying to get them to undertake a studio cast recording of Jerome Moross and John Latouche's 1954 classic THE GOLDEN APPLE. No one bit. If you don't know GOLDEN APPLE, you sure as heck should, because it's glorious: the first off-Broadway musical to receive the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. Sadly, this 135-minute through-sung musical, which transplants parts of the Iliad and the Odyssey to turn-of-the-century Washington State, was preserved only in a 48-minute original cast LP, and that's all most folks have ever heard. But this past fall, Lyric Stage of Irving, TX, mounted a fully-staged production, with a cast of 43 and an orchestra of 38. Moross's daughter, Susanna Tarjan, alerted us that the production was magnificent, and when we heard just how magnificent it was, we committed to a recording. We recorded the last four performances, and this spring, we'll unveil the first full-length recording of THE GOLDEN APPLE, one of the masterpieces of the American musical theatre. Pre-order our double-disc set now!

We've crossed paths with the wonderful Judy Kuhn three times in the last few years: on her solo disc ALL THIS HAPPINESS; on our two-disc set of Sondheim and Lapine's PASSION; and on the Original Cast Recording of Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron's FUN HOME. (She'll also be appearing as Coco Chanel on our upcoming recording of MISIA.) Read more...

Vernon Duke has long been one of Tommy's favorite theatre composers. In the late '90s, while freelancing for Nonesuch Records, he proposed and ultimately produced an album of soprano Dawn Upshaw singing Duke; over a decade later, he restored and recorded one of our most acclaimed studio cast albums, Duke's forgotten 1946 musical SWEET BYE AND BYE. So it was with particular delight last fall that he received an invitation from Duke's widow, Kay Duke Ingalls Read more...
