Leonard Bernstein; New York Philharmonic

Sony Classical announces another ten releases in its popular series of Classical Masters. This new batch of budget-priced sets contains major recording projects by some of the 20th century’s most celebrated musicians. Leonard Bernstein led his New York players in electrifying recordings of the complete Tchaikovsky symphonies in the 1960s and early 70s. This cycle for American Columbia includes Bernstein’s only versions on disc of the first three symphonies as well as superb performances of No. 4 – “Big, rich, boldly colorful engineering does justice to … its impulsive opening movement, dazzling scherzo, and ebullient finale” (ClassicsToday) – and No. 6: “There have been some high-powered Pathétique performances on record, but none higher-powered than this. Bernstein excels himself … The recording is bright and brilliant to match the interpretation” (Gramophone). The new 5-album reissue also contains the composer’s other popular orchestral works, including Romeo and Juliet, Francesca da Rimini, the “1812” Overture, Marche slave and “Hamlet” Fantasy.CD 1Symphony No. 1 in G minor “Winter Daydreams” op. 13Symphony No. 2 in C minor “Little Russian” op. 17CD 2Symphony No. 3 in D major “Polish” op. 29Romeo and JulietCD 3Symphony No. 4 in F minor op. 36Francesca da Rimini op. 32CD 4Symphony No. 5 in E minor op. 64Slavonic March op. 311812 Festival Overture op. 49CD 5Symphony No. 6 in B minor “Pathétique” op. 74Hamlet op. 67
