Truly A Masterpiece!
29 August 2002 | by only_an_ocean_awaySee all my reviews

When I first heard of this new Andrew Lloyd Webber concert, I was thrilled. Lloyd Webber has been my favorite composer for years and I was eagerly awaiting this concert's arrival. I saw it on my local public broadcasting station and was greeted with an array of wonderful songs. The vocally and visually appealing Tony Vincent rocked the house with a powerful rendition of "Jesus Christ Superstar". I was pleasantly surprised to see and hear songs that are often slighted on most other Andrew Lloyd Webber collections, particularly "Take That Look Off Your Face", sung perfectly by Helen Walsh, and "The Perfect Year", a duet between Fei Xiang and one of my favorite singers Elaine Paige. I was elated to hear two songs from The Beautiful Game ("Let Us Love In Peace" and "Our Kind Of Love") which were performed beautifully by power-house, Laura Fitzpatrick. Sophie Crosato moved me to tears when her beautiful voice rang through the air with "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again". And of course, what would an Andrew Lloyd Webber event be without the fabulous Elaine Paige belting out her beloved show-stopper, "Memory"? On the bad side, I disliked Fei Xiang's singing voice and attitude. He seemed arrogant and this annoyed me. Overall, it was very-well done and I loved it so much, I ended up taping it. The music of Andrew Lloyd Webber never fails to entertain and enthrall me.
