|Salena sings Classic Music Classic Salena|
Salena says that she wants to try any songs of any genres. In this 1999, the CD "Romance with Beethoven, Bach...and Salena Jones"(VICJ60240) was released by Victor.
It's based on classical music. They are well known that "Stranger in Paradise" based on Borodin's "Polovtsian Dances" and "The Lamp is Low" based on the theme of "Pavane" by Ravel. But I guess it's so rare that 14 works of a whole album were made from classical music to contemporary music. She put the words into famous melodies together. The CD sold in Japan has Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata". The below is a list of the titles of the European version of that CD, called "Classic Salena".
1. NO OTHER LOVE (based on Etude
in E Major by Chopin)
6. IF YOU ARE BUT A DREAM (based on Romance by Rubinstein)
7. MOON LOVE (based on SymphonyNo.5 in E Minor Opus 64 by Tchaikovsky)
8. THE STORY OF A STARRY NIGHT (based on Symphony No.6 (Pathetique) in B minor Opus 74 by Tchaikovsky)
9. FULL MOON AND EMPTY ARMS (based on Piano Concerto No.2 Opus 18 in C minor by Rachmaninov)
10. MOONLIGHT LOVE (based on Clair de Lune No.3 from Suite Bergamasque by Debussy)
11. DON'T SAY TOO MUCH (based on Clair de Lune No.3 from Suite Bergamasque by Debussy)
