When it premiered in 1954, composer Jerome Moross and librettist John Latouche's THE GOLDEN APPLE was hailed as "the most original musical since Oklahoma!" (The Washington Post), "the best thing that has happened in and to the theatre in a very long time" (New York Daily News), and "a magnificent achievement. A sensational success. The most imaginative work of its kind" (New York Daily Mirror).
WINDFLOWERS: THE SONGS OF JEROME MOROSS offers delectable proof, with selections from his stage shows Ballet Ballads, The Golden Apple, Underworld, and Gentlemen, Be Seated! Alice Ripley, Richard Muenz, Jessica Molaskey, Philip Chaffin and Jenny Giering – five singers equally at home on Broadway, in cabaret and in the recording studio – celebrate an American original, in nineteen selections alternately playful and atmospheric, and always highly melodic.
THE GOLDEN APPLE is a highly acclaimed 1954 Broadway musical based on Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey. The score by John Latouche and Jerome Moross has been compared to music from Porgy and Bess and Candide for its opera-like qualities. Experience these marvelous songs with this special edition, which includes favorites such as "It's the Coming Home Together" and "Lazy Afternoon."
