Sarah Brightman - La Luna



Availability: In stock


Numbered, Limited Edition Hybrid SACD!

Nothing is as evocative of romance and of alienation as the moon. Nothing is at once so barren, yet so vivid.

La Luna manages to capture not only the enigma that is the moon but its elusive beauty as well. Sarah achieves this, not by tethering her lyrics to the theme, but with the artful use of voice and orchestration.

The album opens with "La Lune", gauzy and moody, laced with ambient sounds and voice samples. This sets the tone for the infectious "Winter In July". In the meantime, haunting background vocals on "This Love" and Beethoven's "Figlio Perduto" leave them to linger in the listener's head long after the songs are over. On "Gloomy Sunday", Sarah's silky voice stands in stark contrast to Billie Holiday's smoky rendition.

In this album, Sarah can be heard gliding seamlessly between classical adaptations, '60s anthems and contemporary pop tracks in English, Italian, Spanish, French, even Russian. In the hands of conventional artists, Handel's "Solo Con Te" would never co-exist on the same album with the trip-hoppy "This Love", much less be adjacent to it. Indeed, La Luna's material showcases Sarah's uncanny ability to sing anything under the moon.

Whether it is Rachmaninov or Beethoven, Simon & Garfunkel or the Bee Gees, Sarah deftly bridges the ages for a timeless collection.
