Michael Southern
Australian Hi-Fi, September 2007

This Naxos CD has Richard Hayman and his Orchestra playing all the ‘nice bits’ from many of the musical these two wrote together in orchestral arrangements. Hayman starts, naturally enough, with the major themes of The Sound of Music and then goes back in time to the musicals Carousel, State Fair, Oklahoma!, South Pacific, The King and I and No Strings. Just snippets that you might well sing along with, The Sound of Music certainly presents a good cross-section of the work of two men who had an enormous influence on the entertainment world of the musical in the last century.
