Wonderful performances to treasure
on 13 March 2015
A superb testament to the great Leonard Bernstein.
Recorded towards the very end of his life (and the projected cycle left incomplete at his death) these are magisterial accounts of these great symphonies (1, 2, 5 & 7). I would recommend them to all.
This is an older-and-wiser Bernstein, living every note and bar, and giving the listener that same undimmed concentration. These are quite vast interpretations (not necessarily in timescale), monumental even, but able to explore the intricacies.
Repeated listening rewards.
