To finish off our Valentine's Week features, we present Eileen Farrell singing "Torch Songs."
The very name Eileen Farrell summons affection and respect. Without doubt one of the most celebrated and versatile singers of the century, on this disk Miss Farrell is singing music she holds especially dear — classic American popular songs. This important series boasts arrangements by master accompanist Loonis McGlohon, and two albums for full orchestra by the legendary Robert Farnon, "Arranger to the Stars."
"These discs are indispensible...some of the most satisfying music-making I have heard on a recital record, classical or popular, in years." --Opera News, 12/90.
Of "Torch Songs", Fanfare says "Don't hesitate to add this disc to your collection."
