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.

“An absorbing selection of refined choices and inspirational highlights. Marvellous."

Keith Ames

It is scintillatingly good. Superbrass more than live up to their name.”


Peter Bale

“This is joyous stuff; an intelligent, coherent crossover disc, performed with phenomenal punch. Brilliantly recorded too – what’s the point of assembling a collective of virtuoso brass players if they can’t make your ears bleed ?”

Graham Rickson

“Brilliant technique and superb artistry from all concerned.”

Denis Wick

“An absorbing selection of refined choices and inspirational highlights. Marvellous."

Keith Ames

“Just wanted to give a general shout-out to SUPERBRASS - who are truly super-bad; for my money, one of the most exciting large brass ensembles EVER.”
