Album information

Alfie brings his trademark charm to the songs of Léhar, performing with the Scottish Opera Orchestra.

 

The award-winning star of the ENO and Covent Garden, Alfie Boe, has signed with Linn Records to record his labour of love; an album of Franz Lehár songs inspired by the recordings of Richard Tauber, his father’s favourite singer.

Franz Lehár (1870 - 1948) wrote some of the most instantly recognisable and beautiful music in 20th century operetta producing songs that are charmingly lyrical and incredibly melodic. Growing up listening to Richard Tauber Alfie discovered less frequently recorded repertoire full of Lehár’s trademark drama and romance, included here alongside songs from the famously popular Merry Widow.

Alfie recorded “Franz Lehár” ‘at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall with the respected Orchestra of Scottish Opera and conductor Michael Rosewell, resulting in a delightfully live, cohesive sound.
