Notes & Reviews:
The Biblical story of David and Bathsheba has a lot of present-day relevance. In this story, individual emotions interact with political actions and their consequences. From the opening bars, Kleiberg's music establishes a very particular orchestral and harmonic color, one effect of which is to 'place' the events beyond our reach.

The soundstage is so big, and the atmosphere is so clear! Scarcely have I heard an orchestra sound so sumptuous and true-to-life - to the music. Kleiberg is a skillful composer, and he uses the instruments expertly. This music is worth your attention. The musicians are all terrific; flute, vibraphone, and celeste are prominent and the soloists are superb.
