    "Randy Newman: Live in London" DVD & CD of Performance with BBC Concert Orchestra Out Now

    While touring in support of his 2008 album Harps and Angels, Randy Newman performed a special concert at London’s intimate LSO St. Luke’s, an 18th-century Anglican church that has been restored by the London Symphony Orchestra for use in its community and music education programs. He was accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ziegler, and the program was televised by the BBC. The concert is out now from Nonesuch on CD+DVD as Randy Newman: Live in London. (The UK release follows next week.) Time Out London calls it "essential viewing for fans."

    The 22-song London set features songs from throughout Newman’s four-decade long career, including some of his best-known songs like “Short People,” “Louisiana 1927,” and “I Think It’s Going to Rain Today,” as well as newer songs such as “A Few Words in Defense of My Country” and “Laugh and Be Happy." An interview from the BBC broadcast also is included on the DVD.

    Newman performs a similarly diverse mix of songs on his Austin City Limits television debut, airing this Saturday, November 12, on PBS stations across the United States. For more information and local air times, go to austincitylimits.org.

    Randy Newman will play three UK concerts as part of a European tour in February and March. The tour includes dates in Gateshead, Glasgow, and London, as well as cities in Belgium, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Switzerland. For additional details and ticket links, head to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    To pick up a copy of Randy Newman's Live in London, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the music on the album at checkout.

Comments

Dear Nonesuch,
Sincere congratulations for the production of many high class records!!!
I have a question related to the recent issue "Live in London" by Randy Newman. Who did write the orchestra arrangements for the concert Newman, Ziegler or someone else? It was not written on the envelope but it is very essential.
