Meet the soprano who beat Ed Balls

Andrea Jenkyns, the Conservative who beat Labour’s shadow chancellor in West Yorkshire, is a professional singer and songwriter who claims to have ‘a four-octave range up to F6’.

We got quite excited on spotting a Schoenberg clip on her music website. Unfortunately, it’s from Les Miserables.

  • Now that Ed Balls has more time for his piano practice, perhaps he should start working on the Liszt Totentanz

    • Liszt’s bleakNuages Gris might accord more to Balls’s mood, besides being considerably more in line with his pianistic ability. A bonus is that that we shan’t have to listen to him spouting his load of b***s any longer.

  • 3. Bring Him Home
    Written by Schönberg
    Les Miserable.

    It seems disingenuous to claim that anybody would see this and think that the piece was by Arnold Schoenberg.

  • So, she could sing BOTH Sarastro and the Queen of the Night? (F2-F6 covers that 4 octave range she claims to possess)
