Bernstein: Chichester Psalms
Bernstein: Symphony No. 1, “Jeremiah”
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7

Beethoven’s great Seventh Symphony anchors two contrasting works by Bernstein, Marin Alsop’s inspirational mentor. Both pieces occupy the fascinating nexus between Christian and Judaic liturgical traditions, the introspective First Symphony, and Chichester Psalms, with its catchy melodic and rhythmic appeal.
