Bernstein conducts : Piano Conc. 1 - Liszt / Rhaps. Paganini - Rachmaninov / Piano Conc. - Ravel CD

WAS £5.99 £2.99

Product description

(cover painting by HRH Prince of Wales. The CD was originally sold in aid of the Prince's Charities Trust).

Leonard Bernstein confounded the popular myth of the conductor, as merely an "accompanist". In piano concertos, for instance, he performed a double role ; not merely the subjective illuminator of the many dark corners of orchestral scores, but also the objective expert, on the technical and spiritual problems, which face pianists. Bernstein always managed to combine these roles, not only with great originality, but also with honesty.

Leonard Bernstein always looked at scores in the light of his own activity as a composer ; the poetry and energy with which he presented them came from his insights into the craft, of composition.
