Chess in Concert [2008 London Concert Cast] [Highlights]

by Josh Groban, Idina Menzel



With stirring live performances from Josh Groban, Idina Menzel (Wicked), and Adam Pascal (Rent), Chess in Concert revives the eclectic yet wonderfully pop 1980's musical by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson (Abba) and Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King, Evita).

Recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall in May 2008, this spectacular concert features the City of London Philharmonic and the 100-voice West End Chorus, in addition to the all-star cast of singers.

The original Chess concept album was recorded in 1984 and scored the hit songs "I Know Him So Well" and "One Night In Bangkok." The theatrical version opened in London’s West End in 1986 and played for three years.

Chess in Concert is available as a two-CD set, in a single-disc highlights version, and on DVD. From the Label
