’Evergreen’ (also called ‘Love Theme from A Star is Born’) is the theme song from the 1976 film A Star is Born starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. It was composed and performed by Barbra Streisand with lyrics by Paul Williams.
As composers, Streisand and Williams earned an Academy Award for Best Original Song. She was the first woman ever to be so honored as a composer. At the 49th Academy Awards the song won the Academy Award for Best Original Song and Streisand became the only woman in history to win the Academy Award for Best Actress and the Academy Award for Best Original Song. It also won a Grammy for Song of the Year!
Bosendorfer piano sound – For this recording I’m playing a Yamaha Clavinova – which has the same keyboard action as a traditional acoustic piano, but there are no strings. Pressing a key activates (in this case) a sound which was sampled from a Bösendorfer Imperial Concert Grand piano. Try listening to it with a good set of headphones! It sounds better than any piano I’ve ever owned!!
