The intimate sounds of the cabaret come to life in this collection of entertaining, humorous and seductive pieces from musical theatre, opera, operetta, cabaret and the jazz repertoire.
The intimate sounds of the cabaret come to life in this collection of entertaining, humorous and seductive pieces from musical theatre, opera, operetta, cabaret and the jazz repertoire. Flaunting her supreme vocal and interpretative abilities, vivacious Swedish-Australian soprano Monique Brynnel, injects a double dose of personality and life into this already tantalizing repertoire.
Tracks include "Bring on the men", "I don't want to know", "The man I love", "I know a beautiful girl", "A young girl's morning thoughts", "Why can't a woman have an affair", "Csardas", "The Tipsy Song" from "Night in Venice" and "The Laughing Song" from "Die Fledermaus".
As a teenager, Monique Brynnel was one of Sweden's best known jazz singers. Since then, she has performed as a soloist on concert stages throughout the world, and appeared in leading roles with the Victorian, Queensland and Australian Opera companies - indeed, singing opposite Dame Joan Sutherland in the first direct simulcast from the Sydney Opera House. She has made numerous concert tours for the ABC and appeared in cabaret and television throughout Australia.
