Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

Liberace blended high culture, flamboyant showmanship, and virtuoso musicianship, and in so doing brought the classics to the masses with his florid, romantic, and often humorous style. 16 Biggest Hits has a selection of Liberace's Columbia recordings from 1952-56, the period during which he charted his half-dozen hits. Only four of his six hits are included -- a Christmas medley and a collaboration with Jo Stafford are omitted -- but the program is very strong, mixing Liberace's diverse instrumentals ("Beer Barrel Polka," "Warsaw Concerto," "Twelfth Street Rag") with serious vocal numbers ("September Song") and overtly humorous pieces like his highfalutin' interpretation of "Chopsticks." The live recording of "Liberace's Boogie," in particular, is still hilarious 50 years on, and goes a long way toward showing latter-day skeptics what Liberace's popularity was all about. Liner notes would have been nice, but 16 Biggest Hits is nonetheless an immensely entertaining document of an immensely popular entertainer. ~ Greg Adams

Elton John: die ersten 10 Jahre

Was bieten uns die ersten Jahre von Elton Johns Karriere? Eine umfangreiche Diskographie, eine unüberschaubare Anzahl von Hits, alles in eine üppige Verpackung gehüllt mit einigen dunklen Seiten. Anlässlich der Veröffentlichung der ihm gewidmeten Filmbiografie ("Rocketman" von Dexter Fletcher), werfen wir einen Rückblick auf die 1970er Jahre eines so großartigen Künstlers.

Das goldene Zeitalter des Hollywood-Musicals

In gleichem Maße wie Western- und Gangsterfilme gehört auch das Musical zu den für die klassische Hollywood-Ära so typischen Genres. Hier nun ein kurzes Panorama über Filme der 1930er Jahre bis in die 1960er Jahre hinein, die zwar bunt und voller Glamour, aber oft weniger oberflächlich sind, als es auf den ersten Blick scheint.
