The Definitive "Candide" Overture
B. R. Merrick | 08/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I had this version of the overture on a Deutsche Grammaphon tape a long time ago, with Barber's Adagio for Strings, and Schumann's American Festival Overture. All other recordings I've listened to, owned, burned, or downloaded are vastly inferior. The brass are shiny and clear, the woodwinds light and lyrical. Bernstein takes his own miniature masterpiece here, and runs with it.
Download it now. While you're at it, why not go for the delightful rendition of "America"?"
