Podcast: Singing Bernstein’s praise

September 4, 2015

Raymond Bisha delves into the stunning new Naxos recording of three choral works by Leonard Bernstein. The performances are conducted by Marin Alsop, a protégé of the composer and one of today’s leading interpreters of his work. A fervent spirituality permeates The Lark, the Missa Brevis (the last choral work to be completed by Bernstein) and the Symphony No 3, ‘Kaddish’, which was premièred weeks after the assassination of John F. Kennedy and dedicated to his memory. With a starry line-up of performers, Marin Alsop presents sound proof of the musical power of “this musician who changed the world.”

BERNSTEIN Symphony No 3 ‘Kaddish’, Missa Brevis, The Lark
Washington Chorus, São Paulo Symphony Chorus, Baltimore Symphony, Alsop

Available in North America on 13 November 2015.
