Krystian Zimerman (piano) Berliner Philharmoniker, Sir Simon Rattle

Zimerman's resolutely 'classical' approach to phrasing and textures ensures that every detail of his late friend's technical skill registers, from the almost Schubertian grace with which he shapes his opening solo to the clarity which he brings to the rhythmically complex and almost contrapuntal passages in The Masque: one senses that he’s mindful of Bernstein’s desire to be remembered as a 'serious' composer rather than a Broadway Baby, and is taking this opportunity to set the record straight. ~ Katherine Cooper
