Pink Martini And The Von Trapps Dream A Little Dream on 180g LP + Download
2014's Dream a Little Dream is Pink Martini's eighth studio album and the first major international release by Sofia, Melanie, Amanda, and August von Trapp, the actual great-grandchildren of Captain and Maria von Trapp, made famous by the 1965 film The Sound of Music. These siblings have been singing together for 12 years, and have toured all over the world in concert.
Drawn into the magical orbit of Thomas Lauderdale, they now live together in a house in Portland, Oregon and have been frequent guest performers with Pink Martini for the past few years. Their delightful collaboration features Pink Martini's beloved "little orchestra" fronted by the beautiful crystalline four-part harmonies of the singing siblings, traveling through a wonderland of Lauderdale's brilliant arrangements.
The 15-track recording traverses the world, from Sweden to Rwanda to China to Bavaria, and features guest appearances by The Chieftains, Wayne Newton, "Jungle" Jack Hanna, and Charmian Carr (who played Liesl in the original Sound of Music). This LP edition of Pink Martini's collaboration with the von Trapps comes on high quality 180 gram vinyl and includes an accompanying download card.
