Overview

Leonard Bernstein's New York comprises a selection of songs about New York culled from the composer's musicals (West Side Story, On the Town, and many others). The songs are performed by six stage and cabaret singers -- including Mandy Patinkin and Audra McDonald -- who are all supported by the Orchestra of St. Luke's. All of the vocalists deliver the material with style and passion, which makes Leonard Bernstein's New York an entertaining and effective -- if brief -- overview of the composer's rich career.
