Florence Foster Jenkins - The Truly Unforgettable Voice of Florence Foster Jenkins [LP]
Music On Vinyl and Sony Classical celebrate THE TRULY
UNFORGETTABLE VOICE OF FLORENCE FOSTER
JENKINS on the occasion of the release of Stephen Frears
new biopic starring Meryl Steep as the worst opera singer
of all time.
For some time there has been wide demand for a reissue of
this Florence Foster Jenkins album. Few artists ever gave
such unalloyed pleasure as Florence Foster Jenkins. For
years her annual recital at the Ritz-Carlton was a private
ceremonial for the select few - her stubbornly loyal circle
of clubwomen and the adventurous cognoscenti. Finally, on
the evening of October 25, 1944, Madame Jenkins took the
big step: forsaking the brocade atmosphere of a fashionable
hotel ballroom, she braved Carnegie Hall.
The venue was sold out weeks in advance. Two of the
numbers she performed that night are contained in this
album, taped at private recording sessions of famous
soprano arias some years earlier in New York's Melotone
Studios. Thanks to these recordings, we can still enjoy the
glory of a voice that, in a very peculiar way, has enriched the
lives of many generations of music-lovers.
