Bernstein: Candide

24 FLAC Discount

Marin Alsop leads the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in a new recording of Bernstein’s riotous satirical operetta ‘Candide’.

Made almost three decades after the composer’s own iconic recording with the Orchestra, Alsop’s new version was captured during celebratory concerts marking Bernstein’s centenary year, and features an outstanding array of soloists, including Leonardo Capalbo (Candide), Jane Archibald (Cunégonde), Anne Sofie von Otter (The Old Lady) and Sir Thomas Allen (Dr Pangloss, Narrator).

With lyrical contributions from acerbic writers Richard Wilbur and Dorothy Parker and a young Stephen Sondheim, ‘Candide’ marries raucous humour with the extraordinary genius of Leonard Bernstein.

Concert reviews:

“The best of all possible productions” - The Telegraph

“The rhythms snapped and crackled, the colours were bright and the energy didn’t flag” - The Times “Marin Alsop conducted a lively LSO in music the orchestra must have in its bones” - Financial Times “A hundred per cent irresistible” - Bachtrack
