 Update me on new releases by Bernstein

Leonard Bernstein (8/25/1918 - 10/14/1990)

The highly successful American conductor, composer, pianist and teacher Leonard Bernstein had a strong influence on American musical taste, particularly in his championing of Mahler. In some works, notably in West Side Story, a modern American version of Romeo and Juliet, he attempted a synthesis of American musical styles. He blurred the lines between the concert hall and musical theatre, and he created a rich array of compositions, recordings and writings.

Stage Works

Popular compositions of Bernstein include the ballet score Fancy Free and his comic opera Candide, the overture of which is part of general orchestral repertoire. Other stage works include the musicals On the Town and West Side Story, and a theatre piece based on the Roman Catholic Mass.

Orchestral and Vocal-Orchestral Music

Bernstein wrote three symphonies. Jeremiah (Symphony No 1) of 1943, with its mezzo-soprano solo, represents a religious vein in Bernstein’s music, and The Age of Anxiety (Symphony No 2) is based on the work of the English poet WH Auden. Kaddish (Symphony No 3) is a choral work.
