 In 1915, twenty-five musical stage works opened on Broadway—shows labeled as operettas, comic operas, musical plays, musical revues, comedies with music—with stylings that pointed backwards, forwards, and sideways. Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Sigmund Romberg, and Rudolf Friml were in the early stages of their careers, and Victor Herbert was heading toward his final years. Very little of the more than 300 songs written for these shows has been recorded on modern media. This CD takes a step toward addressing this shortfall by offering one song from each of the works that opened  in 1915—plus, from one of the shows, a second song: Cole Porter’s first Broadway tune.
