Notes & Reviews:

The Gramophone
Bernstein's performances of Milhaud are full of affection and his French orchestra is easy-going in style and silky in sound. The coupling is Milhaud's joyful 1956 recording of the complete Saudades do Brasil, of which Bernstein recorded only four dances.

BBC Music Magazine
Bernstein's buoyantly jazzy readings of La Création dy monde and Le Boeuf su le toit are yoked here with Milhaud's inimitably atmospheric 1956 recording of Saudades do Brasil, 12 brief depictions of districts in Rio, recorded in Hollywood.

This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. As a young man, Darius Milhaud travelled from France to Latin America and the United States. His experience of the New World inspired Le Boeuf sur le toit and Saudades do Brasil, with their exuberant and sinuous dance rhythms, and La Création du Monde, which sprang from his discovery of Harlem jazz. Who better to capture the thrills, wit and subtlety of these musical fusions than Leonard Bernstein?
