Podcast: Sir Thomas Allen on the Great American Songbook

Martin Cullingford Fri 5th October 2018

The acclaimed baritone discusses his new album September Songs

In the latest Gramophone Podcast, the baritone Sir Thomas Allen talks to Editor Martin Cullingford about his latest album, September Songs. Drawing on personal favourites from the ‘Great American Songbook’, it sees the acclaimed singer step from the opera stage and lieder recital hall for which he is best known, to the music of Broadway. In this fascinating conversation he discusses his love of this repertoire, with its melodic beauty, lyrical inventiveness and emotional directness - and his choice of songs.
