Quote from: Mirror Image on June 01, 2022, 07:00:16 AMGreat list, Jeffrey. Although I don't really rate Lincoln Portrait as highly as you do. I never cared for works that contain narration. The music itself is great. My favorite performances are Charleston Heston/Abravanel on Vanguard, but also Henry Fonda/Copland on Columbia (Sony).
Quote from: vandermolen on June 01, 2022, 03:44:55 PMI like the Heston/Abravanel as well John. I'm not so keen on the Henry Fonda version, although he's a fine actor. I even saw it live a while back - poorly narrated by Charles Dance with a melodramatic fake American accent.
Quote from: Mirror Image on June 01, 2022, 03:47:08 PMA melodramatic fake American accent is never a good thing, but neither is an English one, which I've heard from plenty of American actors. I'm a case in point: each time I try an English accent it somehow morphs into Australian.
Quote from: vandermolen on June 02, 2022, 06:12:02 AMV funny!I must say that I have no desire to hear the versions of A Lincoln Portrait narrated by 'Mrs Thatcher' - (listening to that over and over again would be worthy of a place on the lower levels of Dante's 'Inferno') or the one narrated by Norman ('Stormin Norman') Schwarzkopf.PS the best English accents by American actors are by those who have partly British heritage (like Gwyneth Paltrow in 'Shakespeare in Love' - although I am no great fan).
Quote from: Mirror Image on June 02, 2022, 06:34:33 AMIf I heard Margaret Thatcher narrate Copland's Lincoln Portrait, I would take the CD out of the player and smash it to smithereens.
