Overview

Leonard Bernstein is best known as the composer of West Side Story, one of the great masterpieces of the American musical theater. This three-CD set, focusing on the legendary conductor and soloist's original material, includes highlights from the first cast recording of West Side Story alongside excerpts from many of his other works, including his other Broadway shows (On the Town, Wonderful Town, and Candide); his ballet scores (Fancy Free, The Dybbuk, and Facsimile); the three symphonies; and other important works. Ideally, of course, one would want to have all these works in their complete form, but this condensed compilation demonstrates how the composer embraced so many different genres and styles. And, in fact, the set offers complete performances of two key pieces: Chichester Psalms and Prelude, Fugue, and Riffs, the latter featuring the legendary jazz clarinetist Benny Goodman. What's so striking here is how everything -- whether it's a movement of the Mass (composed to commemorate the opening of the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.) or the love theme from the film score to On the Waterfront -- has Bernstein's inimitable stamp. Listen to just a few moments, and Lenny's personality shines right through.

All Music Guide - Lindsay Planer
Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990) was not only a brilliant conductor -- having served with the New York Philharmonic for several decades beginning in 1943 -- but was also recognized as one of the 20th century's most lauded composers. In that respect, few if any have contributed as significantly to classical music in the context of the American experience. It could likewise be contended that his contributions to the Broadway stage solidified the formerly intransigent chasm existing between symphonic and popular music. In honor of what would have been Bernstein's 85th birthday, Sony Music created a pair of mid-priced sets celebrating the maestro's accomplishments. A Total Embrace: The Composer (2003) offers more than three and a half hours of highlights spanning nearly a quarter-century. "The Pirate Song," featuring actor Boris Karloff and "the Pirates," is the earliest entry, dating back to the original Broadway cast recording of Peter Pan from 1950. The most recent inclusion is "The Community" from 1974's Facsimile, a "Choreographic Essay for Orchestra. The contents are divided by either "Concert Works" or "Theater Works," with the latter spread over two-thirds of the anthology. No compilation of Bernstein would be complete without copious excerpts from Candide (1956), West Side Story (1957), On the Town (1958), and Wonderful Town (1958). There is equal time devoted to his sacred works, such as the extremely controversial Mass theater piece for singers, players, and dancers, penned specifically for the opening ceremony of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C., as well as "Kaddish Symphony No. 3," which is parenthetically dedicated "To the Beloved Memory of John F. Kennedy." One minor drawback is the lack of detail in the somewhat skimpy liner booklet. This is especially unfortunate as the primary audience for both this and the companion installment, A Total Embrace: The Conductor, is presumed to consist of novices, who would use these collections as seminal entrées into Bernstein's voluminous catalog. However, that should not discourage curious parties from adding either package to their libraries.
Seattle Times - Melinda Bargreen
The arrival of what would have been Bernstein's 85th birthday [in August 2003] is the excuse for two tasty collections of Bernstein, [The Conductor and The Composer].... While six CDs can't possibly do justice to the enormous output of this prolifically gifted mega-musician, these two sets offer a good cross section.... Great stuff.
