Building on a deep friendship forged on and off the stage, Broadway's Rebecca Luker and Sally Wilfert have recorded an intensely personal celebration of womanhood in all it's complexities and varied expressions. Adapted from the show of the same name, All the Girls is framed by songs from such theater luminaries as Stephen Sondheim, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Fred Ebb and John Kander, highlighted by a delicious and delirious medley of tunes from shows featuring iconic female duets. But Luker and Wilfert enrich the tone and expand the scope by also embracing art songs, cabaret material and even settings of poems written expressly for them by the show's music director, Joseph Thalken (who expanded the orchestrations from four to ten pieces specially for this recording). In doing so, they manage to celebrate women "in all of our messy wonderfulness," as they put it, with an empathy and optimism that radiate through the material. Individually, Luker and Wilfert's dazzling voices and keen dramatic senses animate the tenderness, humor and resilience in these songs, while together their personal bond produces duets of extraordinary sensitivity and beauty. PS Classics is proud to present this inspiring and deeply moving ode to female friendship by two remarkable women.
