Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars What else? Definitive Sept. 10 2005
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A symphonic rendition of West Side Story June 11 2013
By Johan Erik Jacobsen - Published on Amazon.com
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!

Again, I am replacing a lost recording with this purchase, and am so glad to have this music back in my collection, particularly the suite from "On the Waterfront".

4.0 out of 5 stars Jazzy stuff June 9 2000
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is all basically the music of Bernstein's Symphonic dances condensed into one little CD. Excellent CD considering its price where many other Westside story CD's go for 30 dollars or more. A definate buy.
