CSO Presents Bernstein & Sondheim - Two of the Best

These two brilliant composers are the focus of the second musical theatre showcase by CSO, under the baton of Richard Marrett. Music theatre lovers who delight in the sophisticated sounds of these two American composers won't want to miss this concert spectacular.

The music from West Side Story, arguably Leonard Bernstein's most famous musical theatre work, will be among the programme highlights in this stylish concert production.

Bernstein, a Grammy Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated conductor, composer, author, music lecturer and pianist, was decribed by the New York Times as "one of the most prodigally talented and successful musicians in American history." He wrote three symphonies, two operas, five musicals and numerous other pieces.

Stephen Sondheim is another phenomenally successful American composer and lyricist for stage and screen, the winner of an Academy Award, multiple Tony Awards, multiple Grammy Awards and a Pulitzer Prize. He has been called "the greatest and perhaps best known artist in the American musical theatre." His most famous scores include A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods and Assassins. He got his start as the lyricist for West Side Story and also Gypsy.

This will be an unforgettable concert production - one not to be missed.

Conductor: Richard Marrett
