Robert Osborne, Bass-baritone
Richard Gordon, Piano

As a composer of film scores during Hollywood's Golden Age, Franz Waxman has few peers. Virtually unknown is his output of songs written for Weimar-era cabarets and revues and later, as a political emigré in Paris and Hollywood, songs created for an astonishing array of films both classic and obscure. By turns sentimental and satiric, these undiscovered gems and rarities are brought to lustrous life by internationally-acclaimed bass-baritone Robert Osborne in collaboration with pianist Richard Gordon, who were given access to this material by the composer's heir, John Waxman. This welcome collection brings to light an unjustly neglected aspect of the composer's already esteemed work and will establish Waxman as a first-rate composer of songs. -ROVEN RECORDS

“Robert Osborne’s services to music continue with his new exploration of songs of Franz Waxman. This collection - Who Wants Love? Cabaret and Film Songs of Franz Waxman- presents this versatile composer in many genres and languages all handled with Osborne’s customary wit, flair and expertise. Mr. Osborne brings great charm and style to these songs and gives us the opportunity to understand more of their composer’s multifaceted role in music.” - Michael Tilson Thomas, conductor, San Francisco Symphony

"Franz Waxman was a force of nature; a brilliant composer, arranger, sorcerer, genius and magician. Like a tsunami, he and his fellow exiled Berlin colleagues literally swept in a new golden age of American film music. Infected by the energy of his newly adopted homeland, Waxman reinvented his life and his music. He infused his compositions with his remarkable agility, European sophistication and prodigious ingenuity. I envy the younger generation that will discover Waxman for the first time with this beautiful new CD "Who Wants Love?" And for the millions of fans that already adore Waxman, we can continue falling in love with him again and again." - Melodie Hollander, daughter of Frederick Hollander

“One can only be grateful to Robert Osborne and his splendid accompanist Richard Gordon for this album of Franz Waxman’s songs. Like Kurt Weill, whose songs emanate from Berlin, Paris and America, Waxman was one of the truly great composers of the 20th century whose life was cut in two by the racial policies of the Third Reich. And like so many of the composers whose lives had to be recreated in a foreign land, we are still learning about them and their music. This recording does great service in helping us to have a greater understanding of the vast output and achievement of Franz Waxman.” - John Mauceri, conductor

“Robert Osborne and Richard Gordon have assembled a wonderful collection of my father’s cabaret and film songs. Their performances delight me and I know would have also pleased my father.” - John Waxman, son of Franz Waxman
