The American composer Leonard Bernstein first shot to fame when he was appointed Musical Director of the New York Philharmonic in 1958.

But he was also a considerable composer and the exuberant overture to his post-war comic operetta Candide has become something of a hit in its own right


Recorded 8 July 2016, Air Force Museum, Wigram by RNZ Concert.

Engineer: Darryl Stack
