Description
New York Times music critic Anthony Tommasini says of Streisand that "her ability to shape a phrase with velvety legato and find the right expressive coloring for each note and each word is the epitome of cultured vocalism." An album of art songs and arias by European composers, 1976's Classical Barbra—newly remastered by Grammy-winning producer Steven Epstein—was nominated for a classical Grammy, was certified gold, and has never been out of print. Accompanied by Claus Ogerman and the Columbia Symphony, La Streisand sings in English, French, German, Italian, Latin, and (in Canteloube's "Brezairola" from Songs of the Auvergne) in the provincial Occitan dialect. Highlights include Fauré's Pavane, Debussy's "Beau soir," and Robert Schumann's "Mondnacht," as well as the moving arias "Lascia ch'io pianga" from Handel's opera Rinaldo, and "In trutina" from Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. Two bonus tracks (Schubert's "An Sylvia" and "Auf dem Wasser zu singen") pair Streisand's unique voice with a piano accompaniment.

"Streisand's natural ability to make music takes her over to the classical field with extraordinary ease. It's clear that she loves these songs. In her sensitive, straightforward and enormously appealing performance, she has given us a very special musical experience."—Leonard Bernstein
