About

Celebrating the 100th birthday of the 20th century’s greatest musician. Leonard Bernstein is one of the towering figures of twentieth-century music. A brilliant and versatile composer, a revolutionary and thought-provoking conductor, and a personable and insightful educator, ‘Lenny’ broke down barriers between genres and brought classical music to the world - and the world to classical music.

Released to coincide with his centenary on 25 August 2018, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra and conductor Benjamin Northey celebrate the life of this towering talent with an album showcasing his work for Broadway, film and concert stage.

Featuring symphonic dances from his ground-breaking musical West Side Story and his score to the legendary Marlon Brando film On the Waterfront, as well as the sizzling overture to his opera Candide and dance episodes from On the Town, this release presents a musical portrait of one of the most important and best-loved musicians of our time.
