About the album

Een verrassend album met grappige liederen uitgevoerd door serieuze musici
Barbara Kennedy en Peter Lockwood voerden enkele van de liederen op dit album voor het eerst uit tijdens een gek feest op Oudjaarsavond. Barbara Kennedy is tegenwoordig een serieuze klassieke zangeres met een reeks van successen in de opera op haar naam. Meneer Lockwood is repetitor bij de Nationale Opera en vormt een zeer succesvol klassiek pianoduo met Julian Reynolds, wat blijkt uit hun albums met operamuziek voor piano vier handen en werken van Saint-Saëns.

Hun uitvoering van deze geweldige klassieke liederen voor het podium was zo verrukkelijk dat besloten werd om ze op te nemen, op een album dat echt anders dan anders is. Het resultaat is een album met geweldige liederen over liefde en gelach dat ongetwijfeld een groot publiek zal aanspreken.
