 Weiss, Scott


The sheer variety of Leonard Bernstein’s music can be savored in this wide-ranging disc, consisting largely of transcriptions. Bernstein’s immersion in theatrical music is reflected in Clare Grundman’s unique transcription of the Candide suite whilst his film score for On the Waterfront is presented in its symphonic suite form in Jay Bocock’s transcription. The nostalgia of the orchestral Divertimento, written for the centenary of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, is richly brought out in this adaptation. All performances are by the award-winning University of South Carolina Wind Ensemble.

 "... Your enjoyment of this disc will depend on your ability to accept these well-known works in transcriptions for wind band rather than the orchestral originals, I had no such issues. This disc contains well-crafted transcriptions of some of Leonard Berstein’s mostbeloved works in convincing performances ... a most enjoyable programme."

Merlin Patterson - Fanfare - July/August 2013


"The music sizzles in the hands of a wind band. “Fanfare for the Inauguration of John F. Kennedy” could not sound better in its original orchestration than what it sounds like here…The University of South Carolina Wind Ensemble makes a good case for the music and the transcriptions. The music pops at you with sudden flares and surges. The brooding music to “On the Waterfront” also charms, making me think sometimes of Copland and Ellington. There is a lot of fun here"  ***
