Starlight Express the Musical Wiki

Original Live Aufnahme 2013/2015

This most recent recording captures the full score as it was performed in Bochum before the material was revised in 2018.

The recording had an extended production time, having been recorded in June 2013, and released in January 2015.

Although labelled a "live recording", much additional studio work was undertaken, from additional vocals being recorded, to mixing and mastering in UK and Vienna. The end result is a dry, studio sound recording, which does include audience applause but it feels rather detached and "canned". There is little live feel to this recording, unlike the 1989 Live recording. It does, however, have an electronic sound, aimed at a contemporary audience.

Track List

This recording incorporates the music developed for the UK tour and imported into the German production, such as "Whole Lotta Locomotion/Nie Genug" and "I Do/Für Immer".

This recording is indeed the complete show as it was performed then, including as separate tracks all the recit scenes as well as the main musical numbers, that otherwise might be merged into a single track.
