Notes & Reviews:

Ritmo
Soon the objection to the reading of Stravinsky's Mass, a work steeped in the neoclassical style most genuine Russian composer Bernstein recreates sober expression. Good performance of Brian Large enough picture and sound.

MusicWeb International
The performances originated in a BBC TV program, 'The lively Arts: Bernstein at the English Bach Festival'; in those days the BBC used to take music on television seriously. The director was Brian Large and his direction and the camera-work are both excellent. For many people, used to seeing Leonard Bernstein conducting the world's leading orchestras in big symphonic works these performances will probably come as a revelation - as they did to me. It's almost as if we see here the private rather than the public face of Bernstein. This DVD offers an unfamiliar view of Leonard Bernstein conducting small-scale works with great care and affection and, as such, it's an important document.
