Is Anybody Listening? – The CD
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link
Produced and Orchestrated by Peter Link
Peter Link (composer/record producer) won the NY Drama Desk Award for his musical, Salvation, out of which came his first Gold Record, If You Let Me Make Love To You, Then Why Can’t I Touch You? which sold over two million records. He is a two-time Tony Award Nominee for his musical scores of Joseph Papp’s Much Ado About Nothing and Neil Simon’s The Good Doctor. His Broadway credits include Ulysses In Nighttown (Zero Mostel), Lysistrata (Melina Mercouri), The Mighty Gents (Morgan Freeman), Trelawney Of The Wells at Lincoln Center (Meryl Streep, Michael Tucker, Mandy Patinkin, John Lithgow) and King Of Hearts.
Says Peter: “Is Anybody Listening” is a deeply personal search into the concept of Listening — not only listening to music, but also listening to each other, to one’s own heart, to the lessons of one’s own past, and ultimately, listening to God. It explores this through my own personal insights discovered over a half century of songwriting and 13 of my favorite songs written over a lifetime of composition.”
All the water there will be,
Already is …
“Water”, a song from our concert, “Is Anybody Listening?” is sung by a trio of sterling singers, Freedom Bremner, Brian Collazo and Jonathan Singletary on our new CD just out!
“The very same water
That is wetting your lips
May have flowed through the streets Down in New Orleans
Or flowed down the cheeks
And spilled upon the piano keys
As the brilliant Tchaikovsky sat
And wrote his Pathétique.
Did ja’ know that
Here on this rock
As we journey through time
We live by the grace of water …” Read all of the lyrics here.
“It’s a bone-chilling soul-searching arousal of humanity and its ability survive and thrive. EVERYBODY should be listening! = Laurie Lawson, critic, Electronic Link Journal
I am still full of the joy … The songs… spoke to us to savor our souls and our planet. Thank you for allow me to experience such work. Peter link is a musical genius! – Charle Turner, Audience Member, NYC
