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.”
