BBC Proms
Cadogan Hall London, England, United Kingdom

Wallis Giunta, mezzo-soprano; Michael Sikich, piano; Iain Farrington, piano; Toby Kearney, percussion; Owen Gunnell, percussion.

Our Bernstein series continues with a recital of gems by Bernstein and his associates.

The concert also features a new song by British-Lebanese composer Bushra El-Turk, written in response to Bernstein’s witty recipe settings, La bonne cuisine.

Scored for two pianos and percussion, the early, unfinished ballet Conch Town – containing the song now better known as ‘America’ in West Side Story – has now been completed using other material by Bernstein.
