Notes and Editorial Reviews

These performances, the video drawn from two London Barbican performances in December 1989, and the CDs made a few days later at Abbey Road, Bernstein's last studio sessions, represent his final thoughts on his show. DG's version of it is seen as the definitive statement of one of his greatest and most accessible compositions, created just eleven months before his untimely passing. This is the first time the two performances, with identical cast, have been brought together in one format. 2CD/1DVD.
