Description: Before he came to Hollywood in 1935 and became a famous film composer, Waxman was a cabaret pianist and writer of songs for both German and French films. Many of these items here date from that period and were locally popular; the remaining third of the disc samples some of his songs from his Hollywood career. German-English, French-English and English texts. Robert Osborne (bass-baritone), Richard Gordon (piano).
