  • about this album

    Audra McDonald, Mandy Patinkin, and Dawn Upshaw, backed by the Orchestra of St. Luke's, are among the artists saluting the maestro with numbers from Broadways classics like On the Town, West Side Story, and Wonderful Town. Entertainment Weekly called it "lovely and sumptuous ... a great romantic's Gotham."
