Leonard Bernstein Choral Series

Few composers capture their time and become the iconic voice of their age. Writing for small ensembles, symphony orchestras, Broadway, film and opera houses, Leonard Bernstein projected a simple message of understanding and hope employing both complex and simple forms and styles.

While his music finds its spiritual home in his world view, his music speaks with a New York accent, even though he was born in Massachusetts. His love affair with Europe and his sensitivity to his Russian and Jewish roots are never far from his lyrical expressivity, with its fragile sense of optimism, its loneliness, its humor and its demand for acceptance. All of this is wrapped in the rhythmic propulsion of a great American urban landscape. He has left us an aural image of his time and place and, at the same time, an eternal voice of humanity

Leonard Bernstein: The Lark

Review: In 1955, while in the midst of working on a musical version of Voltaire's CANDIDE with the distinguished American playwright Lillian Hellman, Leonard Bernstein wrote these a cappella choruses as incidental music for the play THE LARK, adapted by Miss Hellman from the original French version by Jean Anouilh. Since the drama is about the trial of Joan of Arc, Mr. Bernstein's music is deliberately evocative of that great Saint's medieval era. The initial presentation of the play took place on October 28, 1955 at the Plymouth Theater in Boston, with a cast that included Julie Harris, Boris Karloff, Christopher Plummer and Theodore Bikel.

Songlist: Spring Song, Court Song, Soldier's Song, Prelude, Benedictus, Sanctus, Requiem, Gloria
