Editorial Reviews

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the premiere of West Side Story, Deutsche Grammophon has prepared this deluxe limited edition of its memorable 1984 recording of the musical under the baton of Bernstein himself, with Kiri te Kanawa and Jose Carreras in the leading roles, together with the DVD (PAL) of "The Making of West Side Story". The latter uniquely documents the production's genesis, ups-and-downs, triumphs and tribulations. This is the first time both these discs have been released as a set.

Some have called this project a disaster. This is an "operatic" version of West Side Story and may not be for everyone. The problem is that Jose Carreras was ill suited to the work. It shows the uncomfortable problems Bernstein has with Carreras. There is a moment when both were very annoyed with each other. But, Kiri Te Kanawa is glorious and the chorus and other singers are a delight. The DVD shows Bernstein was not well during the project: smoking a lot and moments when he seems to be in pain. Despite its problems the singing of "One Hand One Heart" is the best you will ever hear. Like I said, great but flawed. Still, the music is timeless and the DVD is very interesting to watch.

I'm in love with this DVD, I only wish that all of the musicians in the orchestra are listed. Unfortunately, their names are anonymous, although you live and breathe with them through every note that they perform. I love seeing Lenny bring out the best in the opera singers and musicians, correcting them, coaching them, sharing interpretations, begging them to get into his head so that they know what he is trying to achieve. I love seeing the emotional energy of musicians in rehearsing and recording sessions. Forget concert halls and tuxedos, this is where the soul emerges and you can witness the creative result as if you were part of the orchestra. They become "one" to create this masterpiece.
