The BBC Proms 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.
