Leonard Bernstein’s music, as with his conducting, and as with his life, is extravagant and impassioned, emotive, and always joyfully life affirming.
It swoops and soars, dips and dives, taking from here, there, but always ends up by ‘being Bernstein’.
The rowdy and raucous downtown Divertimento, full of energy, cannot help but bring a smile to the weariest of dials, as does the wonderful Candide Suite which sees one glorious number tumble out on top of another.
