Bernstein - On the Waterfront Symphonic Suite
Korngold - Violin Concerto
Stravinksy - Petrushka (1947 version)
To mark the centenary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein, we present the suite from his 1954 movie On the Waterfront, which starred Marlon Brando. Erich Korngold was an amazing child prodigy; forced to flee his native Austria he ended up, like so many refugee musicians, in America. Here he wrote his superb violin concerto, undoubtedly his finest work. We finish with Stravinsky's great ballet, Petrushka.
Conductor: Mark Heron
