Reviews For Bernstein Century - Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique, Op. 14, Berlioz Takes a Trip By Artist Leonard Bernstein & New York Philharmonic

  • A Sub-Par Letdown

    By Chenoweth Rex
    I was expecting great things in this recording: Leonard Bernstein is one of the most revered conducters of the twentieth century and certainly knew more about interpretation and thematic development than many of us could ever forget in the first place and the New York Phil is arguably one of the premier recording orchestras in the world. That being said, *most* of this recording is brilliant. Orchestral balance is wonderful, and Bernstein's interpretation of dynamic and tempo markings really bring the piece to life. But be warned: the famed "Dies Irae" in the fifth movement is ATROCIOUSLY out of tune. The low brass and low strings/bassoon are out of tune during the entire movement, and the high trumpets push pitch through the roof. This recording does not do justice to the piece, the composer, the orchestra, or the director. If intonation is not a problem, the quality and interpretation of this performance is fantastic; however, there is no excuse for this kind of intonation to be recorded on a studio album.
  • Superb!

    I have been searching for the right quality, sound, passion, and interpretation for so long. I was debating between a classic conductor in Karajan, but I found it was too stiff and the motif seemed rushed. Bernstein captures the unique sense of the fanastic for which Berlioz sought; now add to that a high quality recording and you have a brilliant interpretation. I am quite pleased with this purchase. Bernstein's commentary is fun, but unnecessary. I would have wished there were other small Berlioz morsals added to this record, but a pure dedicated Symphonie Fantasique is appreciated too.
  • INDESCRIBABLE

    Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

    Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
