Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

With his legendary ability to conjure up magical sonorities, Leonard Bernstein offers his definitive reading of Debussy's impressionistic sound worlds. His series of concerts with the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome was recorded in 1989, the year before his death, and featured three of the French composer's masterpieces, Images, La Mer and Prelude a l'apres-mide d'un faune, in a feast of Mediterranean sensuality. "Bernstein's Debussy is neither ethereal nor gelatinous, but uncommonly vital, caught in the full light of noon." (Il Giornale, Rome). "An unprecedented triumph." (La Stampa, Turin)
