Unmasked (The Platinum Collection): Limited Edition

UMC / Polydor

Curated by Really Useful Group and Andrew Lloyd Webber, ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER: UNMASKED – THE PLATINUM COLLECTION offers a superb overview of the career to date of one the most successful composers of the modern era.

Not just an ultimate greatest hits collection, it also offers two further discs that explore Lloyd Webber’s work in greater detail. ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER: UNMASKED – THE PLATINUM COLLECTION assembles the finest of his cherished works from the past five decades, and contains newly-recorded versions of songs by LANA DEL REY, GREGORY PORTER, and NICOLE SCHERZINGER. It also contains recordings by world-class performers such as BARBRA STREISAND, MADONNA, MICHAEL CRAWFORD, SARAH BRIGHTMAN, ELVIS PRESLEY and, released for the first time, BEYONCÉ singing ‘Learn To Be Lonely’ from the 2005 Academy Awards with Lloyd Webber accompanying on piano.

There are also five newly created orchestral suites, specially prepared from existing recordings to give a précis of some of the shows dearest to Andrew, emphasising the grand orchestral aspects of his work. The set comes complete with a 40-page book with track notes by respected theatre critic and Lloyd Webber biographer Michael Coveney; there is a note from Andrew himself as well as specially written tributes from Barbra Streisand, Glenn Close, Michael Crawford and Tim Rice among others.
