Sinatra sings Tchaikovsky!


Frank Sinatra released an album in 1966 entitled "Moonlight Sinatra," whose title is a reference to Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. All the songs in the album are somehow related to the moon.

One of the tracks, entitled "Moon Love" uses Tchaikovsky's music from the 2nd movement of his Symphony No. 5, which our own MYS Symphony Orchestra will play on November 13 at the Schnitzer.

Sinatra's arrangement is by Andre Kostelanetz, a Russian-American conductor and arranger, mostly of orchestral pops.

Below is a video of the song with lyrics.

Enjoy!!

P.S. Credit to Cammie Lee (violin, Symphony Orchestra) for finding this and sharing it with us at the office.
