Leonard BERNSTEIN: Serenade for Solo Violin, Strings, Harp, and Percussion; Facsimile: Choreographic Essay for Orchestra; Divertimento for Orchestra
Philippe Quint, violin
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Marin Alsop

(UPC 636943924525; release date: November 15th, 2005)

8.559245

The Serenade (1954), inspired by Plato’s Symposium and distinguished by Bernstein as his “most satisfying” work, features violinist Philippe Quint, whose Naxos recording of William Schuman’s Violin Concerto received two GRAMMY nominations.  Quint will perform Ned Rorem’s Violin Concerto on an upcoming Naxos recording with José Serebrier and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.  The first movement of the Serenade includes the slow, lyrical melody of the song “Maria” from West Side Story (Naxos 8559126).

Facsimile (1946), both acerbic and tender in tone, depicts post-war malaise and the spiritual vacuum of modern man.  In the Divertimento for Orchestra (1980), composed for the centenary of the Boston Symphony, Bernstein enjoys himself with many musical puns and breezy humor.

This CD is performed by Marin Alsop and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, whose recording of Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms received significant critical acclaim.
