Anna Russell (born Anna Claudia Russell-Brown; 27 December 1911 – 18 October 2006) was an English–Canadian singer and comedian. She gave many concerts in which she sang and played comic musical sketches on the piano. Among her best-known works are her concert performances and famous recordings of The Ring of the Nibelungs (An Analysis) – a humorous 22-minute synopsis of Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen – and (on the same album) her parody How to Write Your Own Gilbert and Sullivan Opera.
Anna Russell is one of the latter, gifted with an amazing classically trained voice and a wicked sense of humor, which she uses to good effect on two albums, Anna Russell Sings? and Anna Russell Sings! Again?; those two albums were later compiled into this two-album set, The Anna Russell Album?.
Anna Russell - The Anna Russell Album, Disc EX, Case EX, Format: Music CD, Sony Records. Classical music CD release from Anna Russell with the album The Anna Russell Album. Released on the label Sony Records. Anna Russell was brilliant in cutting to the heart of lofty music. Although some of the references are a bit dated the essence of her humor transcended and continues to transcend to timelessness. This is the fourth time I have purchased this particular CD - I loan it to people and they steal it!
