West Side rookie

BBC Music Magazine - - The Full Score -

John Eliot Gar­diner, a con­duc­tor usu­ally as­so­ci­ated with mas­tery of Mon­teverdi and bril­liance in Bach, is to re­veal a rarely-seen side of his mu­si­cal per­sona at this year’s Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val – on 5 & 6 Au­gust, Gar­diner will be tak­ing the reins for two con­cert per­for­mances of Bern­stein’s West Side Story. He will be joined for the oc­ca­sion by the Scot­tish Cham­ber Or­ches­tra and a cast in­clud­ing so­prano Sophia Bur­gos and tenor Alek Shrader as Maria and Tony.
