The Original 1989 London Cast Recording. This almost chamber-like work features Lloyd Webber's most sophisticated music. A literary story in post-World War II England, Aspects of Love introduced the enuring classic song, Love Changes Everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN IMPROVED RELEASE OF ALW'S INTIMATE CHAMBER PIECE December 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When "Aspects of love" premiered in April 1989 in London, wide audiences knew Andrew Lloyd Webber mostly by his big blockbuster musicals such as "Cats", "The Phantom of the opera" or "Evita. After the "Phantom", the composer decided to try something new, much in the same way he has done with "Cats" in the early 80-is after he decided to part ways with his lyricist Tim Rice. As the basis for his next musical he chose David Garnett's short novel of the same title.

The plot involves various love triangles and is as close to a soap opera as you can get in a musical. We follow a 17 year-old Englishman Alex, who is in love with an older French actress Rose Videle. They end up in the Spanish villa that belongs to Alex's uncle George, an elderly painter and writer. George in turn has an ongoing affair with a younger Italian sculptress Giulietta. George finds Rose and Alex in the villa and after Alex is called to the army, George and Rose begin living together, which at first Alex finds impossible to accept. Giulietta and Rose become quite friends, there is even a hint of a lesbian relationship between them. Even so, George and Rose get married. Some time has passed and Alex is out of the army and is reunited with George, Rose and their 14 year-old daughter Jenny in their villa in France. Jenny falls in love with Alex, something that a very old George, now depended solely on Jenny's love cannot agree to. Alex is torn between Rose and Jenny and soon George dies. At his funeral Alex meets Giulietta and they are instantly drawn to one another. Alex leaves with her, although Rose pleaded him not to leave her alone.

As you can see, the plot isn't quite as simple as it might appear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Changes Everything February 5, 2002
By Z. Yang
Format:Audio CD
After the spectacular rock musical of Jesus Christ, the extravaganza of Cats, and the glorious operatic Phantom, Andrew Lloyd Webber surprised the world with his down-to-earth "Aspects of Love", a musical adapted from the novel by David Garnett. The unusualness is also reflected in the music. What we hear is an intimate and rather contrasting music score played on a smaller orchestra - a gentle and elegant chamber piece.

The show is about love. The relationships woven among the five main characters: Alex, Rose, George, Jenny and Giulietta, is complicated enough to confuse the audience, and yet, with Don Black/Charles Hart's witty lyrics and Andrew Lloyd Webber's stroke of genius, the story is unfolded methodically. The musical is opened, uniquely, with one male soloist (Michael Ball) singing "Love Changes Everything", which distills the essence of the show. While Andrew Lloyd Webber wrapped the well-knitted plot with his intertwining music, he didn't forget bringing out half dozen of enchanting songs, which can also be performed singly in concert. Besides "Love Changes Everything", there are "Seeing is Believing", "Anything But Lonely", "The First Man You Remember", "Mermaid Song", "There is More to Love"...... The melodies simply strike you to the heart the first time you hear them and will stay there for the rest of your life.

The cast is wonderful. It feels like character Alex was written for Michael Ball. I don't know if it is Michael who made Alex so charming or it is Alex who made Michael so irresistible. His fully voiced, straight from the belly B-flat at the end of Act II alone is already one magic of the show, and yet, he offers more: his vibrato and his croon, his passion and his tenderness. I think Ann Crumb is very successful in creating Rose.

It, in deed, gives you a unique aspect of love. It's Weber before he lost his drive. It's hard to love, but hard to not love it.
