There very talented young performers from the Artsylum Quarte, piano, violin and bass, preform a wonderful rendition of Arabian Nights, A Friend Like Me, Prince Ali and A Whole New World. The latter was really amazing to listen and enjoy the beautiful composition by Alan Menken. Shame about the background noises though. Also listen to their The Little Mermaid medley, Pocahontas and Mulan preforms at their Youtube account.
In an homage/honor of Alan Menken Darren Criss, the talented Glee actor, did his own slowÂ arrangementÂ of the classic A Whole New World with Lea Salonga. Watch Alan’s reaction when Lea enters stage -:) I imagine he wasn’t that impressed by Darren’sÂ arrangement, until Ms. Salonga came on stage it was slow and boring.
Tim Rice’s lyrics are taken to a fresh, new dimension by AstralSandwich and QuasiRomantical preforming this classic love song in ASL (American Sign Language).
After watching a not-so-good rendition of the Dutch translation of Go To The Distance I was ready to listen to the original and from one came another. Here’s the great Alan Menken doing a mix of his best work at a party of some kind back in ’08. Love how the public sang a long with AWNW.
