Description

Leonard Bernstein (1918–1990) was an American composer, conductor, author, music lecturer and pianist. He was among the first U.S.A. born conductors to receive worldwide acclaim and described by one critic as "one of the most prodigiously talented and successful musicians in American history." His fame derived from his long tenure as the musical director of the New York Philharmonic and from his compositions, West Side Story, Candide, Wonderful Town, On the Town, On the Waterfront, plus three symphonies and many shorter chamber and solo works. Bernstein was the first conductor to give a series of television lectures on classical music, starting in 1954 and continuing until his death. He was a skilled pianist, often conducting piano concertos from the keyboard. He was also a critical figure in the modern revival of the music of Gustav Mahler, a composer in whose music he was most passionately interested.

“Many recordings over the last few decades have demonstrated the superb quality of British brass playing; 'Under the Spell of Spain' will rightfully take its place among them.”

“This intriguing "water-borne" voyage runs the gamut from more classically-tinged interpretations to straight-ahead and improvised jazz. Along that journey we are treated to a highly inspired and masterfully presented performance.”
