We cannot wait to see “Maestro,” Bradley Cooper’s new film biography of Leonard Bernstein. We think it could be one of the most important movies ever made about classical music – and we hope that we will be right. We also think the film could attract a new, younger audience to classical music in general. We are excited.
Although we cannot see the movie until it is released on November 22nd, we can start listening to the music that will be used in the soundtrack. Fortunately, a lot of the music that will be used in the film is available to you right now on Classical Archives.
Today, we would like to offer you a chance to listen to a complete recording of West Side Story, conducted by Leonard Bernstein, the maestro himself. (To listen, you must be a member of Classical Archives. Membership, which costs only $7.99/month, affords you unlimited listening to tens of thousands of classical tracks. And you can start a free 14-day trial membership if that works best for you.)
Be sure to check back here often, because until “Maestro” is released, we will be offering you a steady stream of recordings of music by Leonard Bernstein, conducted by Leonard Bernstein.
CLICK HERE to start listening to a complete recording of the immortal West Side Story, conducted by Leonard Bernstein. This is the definitive recording. And the cast is superb, including Kiri Te Kanawa, José Carreras, Angelina Reaux, and other stars.
