The sheer variety of Leonard Bernstein’s music can be savored in this wide-ranging disc, consisting largely of transcriptions. Bernstein’s immersion in theatrical music is reflected in Clare Grundman’s unique transcription of the Candide suite whilst his film score for On the Waterfront is presented in its symphonic suite form in Jay Bocock’s transcription. The nostalgia of the orchestral Divertimento, written for the centenary of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, is richly brought out in this adaptation. All performances are by the award-winning University of South Carolina Wind Ensemble.
