Humoresque Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg's Humoresque is based on the 1947 film of the same name, which starred Joan Crawford and John Garfield and featured Isaac Stern on violn. Working from Franz Waxman's original score and arrangements, Salerno-Sonnenberg and conductor Andrew Litton run through all of the music from the film, including pieces from Bach, Rimsky-Korsakov and Cole Porter. Her interpretations are fresh and lively, and the result is a unique, enchanting album.
