No one can doubt conductor Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops' ability to make great music and to please audiences. With On Broadway it's indisputable—Kunzel and his Cincinnati players were born with Broadway in their bones.
This collection culls some of the most memorable music from recent Broadway shows and includes all new arrangements of "Seasons of Love" from Rent, "On Broadway" from Smokey Joe's Café, the Suite from Miss Saigon, "He Lives in You" from The Lion King, "Lily's Eyes" from The Secret Garden, and many more. With On Broadway, Kunzel and the Pops' fluency in the styles of Broadway is complete.
Erich Kunzel is the most successful Billboard classical crossover-recording artist in history. Called "The Prince of Pops," Kunzel has mastered the art of making a 100-piece band swing. He was named conductor of the Cincinnati Pops when it was established in 1977. Twenty two years later, the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra is still performing for packed houses in Cincinnati's Music Hall and gaining new fans the world over through tour performances and its recordings on Telarc.
