Description

‘I like recording very much because there are so many ways you can direct attention to aspects of the music that is just not possible in an everyday concert.’ (Leonard Bernstein, Gramophone, 1970) Featuring the only engagement that Bernstein undertook with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, this intense performance of Elgar’s ‘Enigma’ Variations from 1982 is brought to life on DVD. With fascinating rehearsal footage and a bonus interview conducted by Barry Norman, this Bernstein title is essential viewing.
