Music Review: Leonard Bernstein: An American LIfe

Of course Bernstein is the famous composer of music for musicals.  In this collection of music, it is mostly orchestral.  It includes overtures, a few vocal numbers from his musicals, and lots of orchestral music including Symphony 1 and Symphony 2.  It has an instrumental version of "Somewhere" as well as
"New York New York" from On the town.  Also very memorable is fanfare for the Common Man written by Copland.
