This recording brings together music from some of Leonard Bernstein’s best-loved scores with seldom heard occasional works and premiere recordings. From the iconic musical West Side Story, the hot-blooded dance number ‘Mambo’ embodies the show’s dramatic tensions. ‘Slava!’ celebrates Bernstein’s friend and colleague, the cellist and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich, in music reworked from the daring show 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, from which the Suite rescues further highlights. ‘CBS Music’ has not ben heard since the broadcasting giant’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 1978, while the ‘Birthday Bouquet’ takes the form of affectionate musical tributes from eight composer colleagues to one of the twentieth century’s greatest musicians. Marin Alsop is an inspiring and powerful voice in the international music scene who passionately believes that “music has the power to change lives.” She became music director of the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra in 2012 and made history in 2013 as the first female conductor of the BBC’s Last Night of the Proms, which she returned to conduct in 2015. As a student of Leonard Bernstein, Alsop is central to his 100th anniversary celebrations, conducting Bernstein’s ‘Mass’ at the Ravina Festival, where she serves as musical curator for 2018 and 2019.
