The world becomes a better place as Leonard Bernstein conducts his first West Side Story with the abandon, genius, and intimate knowledge of every detail he, as composer, imagined. The crisp orchestra and slower tempos maximize the colours of the orchestral landscape and create magic. This recording falls just one tenor's diction short of perfection. Te Kanawa's scrumptious soprano deliciously graces Maria's music, realizing the virtuosity often unattainable in theatre singers' renditions. Troyanos combines a ferocious chestiness with classically trained savvy. The only weakness is Carreras's diction, which he so obviously works hard to Americanise, but falls distractingly short. Still, the overall recording is brilliant. --Barbara Eisner Bayer
A lovely Cd performed brilliantly, but somehow the voices are wrong for the piece. Mature voices of this calibre don't feel like they reflect the story. Read morePublished 29 days ago by James, London.
