Original Broadway Classics
Welcome to a piece of entertainment history - the complete original Broadway cast recordings of Rodgers and Hammerstein's most successful musicals, 'South Pacific', 'Oklahoma!', 'The King And I', 'Carousel',all gathered together in one definitive 4 CD collection.
As well as representing the composing brilliance of Richard Rodgers and the libretto- and lyric-writing genius of Oscar Hammerstein at their zenith, the four musicals showcased here reveal musical theatre at its most influential. Across a period of nearly 30 years, no creative partnership did more to transform the musical as we know it or create a body of songs so loved by the public at large. Their shows and songs have been part of the fabric of our lives for nearly seven decades and are still performed, sung and admired by each new generation. This collection is a glimpse of how it all began for a song writing team who came together without fanfare and launched a revolution.
All tracks sensitively restored and digitally remastered.
