Special Editions of West Side Story & Candide + seven new High Definition digital re-releases
January 19 - On the occasion of Bernstein's centenary year, the 100th anniversary of his birth, we continue a rolling program of new and re-releases commemorating this icon of the 20th century musical world. This week we present two deluxe hardback CD/DVD sets as well as seven new re-mastered albums re-released digitally in High Definition. The West Side Story CD/DVD edition brings together Bernstein’s own definitive recording of his great American musical and the acclaimed “Making-of” film. The Candide Edition for the first time brings together the separate audio and video performances, with identical cast - the video drawn from two London Barbican performances in December 1989, and the audio made a few days later in Abbey Road. Both editions include a hard-back book of over 100 pages and the Candide DVD is also in Surround Sound.
