Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan in the upcoming movie “Maestro”
On November 22nd “Maestro,” Bradley Cooper’s new film biography of Leonard Bernstein, will be released in theaters. We think it could be one of the most important movies ever made about classical music. We also think the film could attract a new, younger audience to classical music in general. We hope so. We are excited.
Although we cannot see the movie until it is released on November 22, we can start listening to the music that will be used in the soundtrack. Fortunately, a lot of that music is available to you right now on Classical Archives.
Today, we invite you to start listening to Sony Classical recordings of Bernstein conducting the New York Philharmonic in performances of the nine Beethoven Symphonies. Bernstein conducted them all masterfully, though he is best known for his recordings of the Symphony No. 5 and of course of the “Choral” Symphony No. 9. You will recall that On Christmas Day, 1989 Bernstein conducted it in Berlin following the fall of the Berlin Wall.
(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 now.
We hope you will make Classical Archives your home for enhancing your enjoyment of “Maestro.”
