In over 35 years John has produced hundreds of recordings, including works by Stephen SondheimLeonard Bernstein, Lerner and Loewe, Kander and Ebb, Kurt WeillAndrew Lloyd Webber, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Cole PorterJerome Kern and virtually every significant Broadway and West End writers and composers. In addition to recording Original Broadway Cast, West End Cast, European Cast and Off-Broadway Cast albums, he has worked with and recorded productions by The Royal Opera House, The English National Opera, The D'Oyly Carte Opera, Scottish Opera, Opera North, The Royal Shakespeare CompanyChichester Festival Theatre and, in the USA, The Kennedy Center and The Lincoln Center Theatre.
