Barbra Streisand: Classical Barbra. Completely Remastered with Two Previously Unreleased Bonus Tracks.

In 1973, Barbra Streisand went into the studio to make one of the first – and still considered one of the best – classical crossover recordings, CLASSICAL BARBRA. This unique collection of art songs and arias was originally released in February 1976, with its striking cover portrait by Francesco Scavullo, and has never gone out of print. The German composer and arranger Claus Ogerman conducts the Columbia Symphony Orchestra and accompanies Streisand at the piano in music of Canteloube, Fauré, Handel, Orff, Schumann and Wolf.

Thirteen-time Grammy –winning producer Steven Epstein has remastered the original recording for this reissue, the first since its original CD release in 1987. Most importantly, it contains the first ever release of two additional tracks recorded during the original sessions but never available until now – two of Franz Schubert’s best-known songs, “An Sylvia” and “Auf dem Wasser zu singen.”


“Beau Soir” - Debussy

“Brezairola” (Berceuse) from Chants d’Auvergne (Part III) - Canteloube

“Verschwiegene Liebe” (No.3) from Eichendorff Lieder - Wolf

“Aprés un rêve” from Trois melodies, Op. 7, No. 1 – Fauré
