Description
Part of the "Bernstein Century" series, this collection showcases the conductor's dynamic tenure with the NYPO in the 1960s. The first of his two recordings of the work, this version of the "New World" symphony significantly outclasses his remake on Deutsche Grammophon.

"The symphony is truly exciting and almost overwhelming in this vigorous interpretation, and the orchestra pours out all its energy where it counts…. The NYP is full of vitality and brings off the Overture with great panache."—All Music Guide

"There's no such thing as a 'definitive' recording, but if there were, this one would come close to that imagined ideal. Its special qualities haven't dimmed a bit in the four decades since it was recorded, and every interpretive decision comes across with the inevitability of fate itself. First, you get the first-movement exposition repeat (very unusual for its time), then there's the very slow (but still very flowing) Largo, gorgeously played…. The scherzo goes like the wind, the fastest ever, and the finale offers simply the last word in excitement…. If you don't own this performance in some form, then you don't know the 'New World'."—Classics Today
