Chichester Psalms
Kansas City Symphony Chorus/Kansas City Symphony
Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, Kansas City, Missouri, United States

Typical of American composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein’s original and eclectic style, the Chichester Psalms combine various influences, including music initially intended for the Broadway stage. A hidden gem, Tchaikovsky’s Concert Fantasy parallels the melodic inspiration, virtuoso fireworks, and sumptuous orchestration found in the composer’s famous First Piano Concerto. Choral Fantasy, for solo piano, chorus and orchestra, clearly hints at Beethoven’s immortal “Ode to Joy” from his Ninth Symphony.
