New Bernstein digital album release

In honor of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday, Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony unveil their latest digital release: Bernstein’s personal and vacillating song cycle Arias and Barcarolles. In this recording, MTT enlivens a work he premiered with the composer, and shares with us a glimpse into the mind of one of music’s greatest cultural ambassadors. Available on all download and streaming channels, Bernstein: Arias and Barcarolles features the voices of mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard and bass-baritone Ryan McKinny, and an orchestral arrangement that is, according to MTT, “everything that Bernstein would have wanted it to be.”
