AllMusic Review by

Recorded during the 2013 Montreux Jazz Festival, The Candlelight Concerts: Live at Montreux 2013 features legendary Queen guitarist Brian May teaming up with musical theater star Kerry Ellis. Performing a collection of songs including the Lieber & Stoller classic "I Who Have Nothing," Barbra Streisand's "The Way We Were," and Queen staples like "Somebody to Love," the pair deliver an intimate performance that breathes new life into songs of the past. Though they might seem like an unlikely pair, the combination of May's emotive guitar work and Ellis' stage presence quickly makes it clear that these two belong on-stage together, making for a performance that will appeal to Queen fans and musical lovers alike.
