Notes

From booklet:

This album includes the highlights from the Danish 2001/2002 tour of CHESS. An ambitious co-operation between artists from five nations.

This highly acclaimed musical develops the ancient and distinguished game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and East-West politicla intrigue. The principal pawns form a love triangle:the loutish American Grandmaster (Zubin Varla), the earnest Russian champion (Stig Rossen) and the Hungarian-American female chess second (Emma Kershaw), who arrives at the international championships with the American but falls for the Russian. From Tyrol to Thailand the players, lovers, politicians, CIA, KGB make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock score.

Several numbers, including "One Night in Bangkok", "Anthem" and "I Know Him So Well" are international hits.

Durations are not in booklet but from itunes.
