An historical album if there is one, with its iconic cover photo. Conducting from the piano in Rhapsody in BlueLeonard Bernstein manages to capture the lean vigor and impertinence that emanates from the work. He whips up a beefy orchestral contour while subtly jazzy, intensely inspired and romantic in feeling. The dynamic Suite An American in Paris is full of that energy that Bernstein used to know how to distil like no other did. Listen to the orchestra rip into the Charleston. These recordings, from 1958-59, are fabulous, and well worthy of their reference status. The famous West Side Story Symphonic Dances, and the Symphonic Suite "On the Waterfront" complete this album of American music bursting with infectious enthusiasm. © Qobuz

For the centenary of the composer’s passing, Qobuz offers you a few pointers

Leonard Bernstein, the universal music

Pianist, conductor, composer and pedagogue, Leonard Bernstein has led a busy life. A major figure of American music, the composer of West Side Story knocked together different influences: bel canto, Mahler’s Romanticism (of which he was the most incarnated performer), his direct masters Walter Piston and Aaron Copland, not forgetting jazz rhythms and Broadway’s antics.
