Notes & Reviews:

This is the world premiere recording of Leonard Bernstein's "A White House Cantata." The work had its debut only in 1997 at the City of London Festival at Barbican Center under the direction of Kent Nagano. This DG studio recording is with the same forces, including the voices of Thomas Hampson, June Anderson and Barbara Hendricks. It is written in the tradition of a musical, with rousing choruses and exhilarating musical numbers. An essential recording for the Bernstein devotee.
