Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra pay homage to Leonard Bernstein with a recording of Wonderful Town that captures the energy and excitement of sold-out performances from December 2017. Featuring an all-star cast led by Danielle de Niese and Alysha Umphress, this release coincides with worldwide #BernsteinAt100 celebrations marking the centenary of the Orchestra’s former President.

REVIEW:

Rattle obviously adores the score and certainly enters into its spirit. The score is regularly classy, containing many good things, and this cast offers plenty of strengths. De Niese shines in ‘A Little Bit in Love’, which suits her perfectly.
