Product Description

Nothing can compare with Bernstein's own accounts of his music. The best recordings are still the ones he made with the New York Philharmonic for Columbia, when scores such as Candide and West Side Story were still "new" music. Originally produced by John McClure (and remixed by him for CD), these recordings of the Candide Overture and the Symphonic Dances from West Side Story have never been bettered, not even by Bernstein. --Ted Libbey

What else? Definitive Sept. 10 2005
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Bernstein was the greatest conductor of Bernstein, and nothing has changed over the decades. This pressing of some classic performances comes from early digital remastering, I believe, and later remasterings remove some of the harshness and sketchiness of the sonics. Also, one has to be prepared for the huge orchestral forces that inflate this theater music, but even so, nothing matches these readings.

Bernstein- always so listenable March 27 2014

Fine recording. Most of pieces familiar, but mainly I wanted the recording for that lovely, haunting suite from "On the Waterfront" and it doesn't disappoint.

A symphonic rendition of West Side Story June 11 2013
By Johan Erik Jacobsen - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Here is the great music from West Side Story, woven together for a symphony orchestra. The full sweep and drama of the show is in this score. Excellent!
Delightful Nov. 6 2015
By Robert B. Lamm - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I can't top the other reviewers; this is a joy to listen to, though not one where you lean back and engage in reveries; rather, you find yourself tapping your feet, moving with this incredible music and almost singing out loud (at least for those pieces that have words). A bargain at twice the price!
It was a great treat to find them all on one CD March 17 2015

Incredible CD. I've only heard these performed by live orchestras. It was a great treat to find them all on one CD.
