Limited Deluxe 4CD Edition!

The 4CD version, apart from the contents of the 2CD version, contains an exclusive 40-page book with a personally penned introduction from Lloyd Webber and more in-depth notes on each track, written by respected theatre critic and Lloyd Webber biographer Michael Coveney, together with personally written tributes from Barbara Streisand and Glenn Close among others.

As one of the most successful composers of the modern era, Andrew Lloyd Webber's repertoire includes some of the world's most celebrated musicals; Sunset Boulevard, Cats, Aspects Of Love, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Starlight Express, The Phantom of The Opera, School of Rock and Love Never Dies - to name but a few.

This repertoire - and more - are presented in the 2CD 'Andrew Lloyd Webber: The Platinum Collection' to celebrate the composer's 70th birthday.

The collection is personally curated and overseen by Lloyd Webber to include classics from his earliest work and newly recorded songs from superstar artists Nicole Scherzinger ("Memory", Cats), Gregory Porter ("Light at the End of the Tunnel", Starlight Express) and Lana Del Rey ("You Must Be Love", Evita) add to the collection of his cherished works from the past five decades.

The set also contains recordings by world-class performers such as Barbara Streisand, Madonna, Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman, Michael Ball, and released for the first time, Beyonce singing "Learn To Be Lonely" from the 2005 Academy Awards with Lloyd Webber accompanying on piano.

Also in celebration of his 70th birthday, Lloyd Webber's new autobiography Unmasked: A Memoir will be released on 6th March by Harper Collins.  Written entirely in his own words, Lloyd Webber recounts his fascinating life and remarkable career. A natural storyteller, with his signature humour and self-deprecating tone, Lloyd Webber shares the details of his early personal and professional years, including his early artistic influences. He takes stock of his achievements, the twists of fate and circumstance, which brought him both success and disappointment, and the passions that inspire and sustain him.
