 Sublime strings June 10, 2016 By John M. (St. Augustine, FL) See All My Reviews "This interesting, varied program of string selections becomes an extremely satisfying listening experience on the genius baton of Leonard Bernstein leading musicians he knew better than any other. Capturing the individual style of each selection these versatile musicians represent their reputation with ease and mastery. This recording should be in the collection of everyone who values the sound of sublime strings." Report Abuse
