About this Recording

BERNSTEIN: Jewish Legacy (A)

“What are the Jewish roots I long for?” wrote Leonard Bernstein as he pondered one of his many Jewish-inspired compositions. This unique collection of rarely heard works—including several world-premiere recordings—reveals many possible answers to Bernstein’s question. Triumphal processions, mysterious invocations, intimate Jewish character portraits, rousing dances; all of these musical offerings present the great eclectic imagination of one of America’s foremost 20th-century composers.
