Tchaikovsky: 5th Symphony, L. Bernstein

August 9, 2012

I have never paid much attention to the conductor. Oh, I’ve heard the names of the Big Boys, Toscanini, von Karajan, Seiji Ozawa – but I must say that I’m now hooked on Bernstein. His passion is visible; and when combined with the passionate work of Tchaikovsky, you have here a truly triumphant combination.

“I’ll Be Seeing You” M. Buble

Oh, my! Two superlatives together.

Cole Porter “Begin the Beguine” by M. Buble

Another of my favorite songs. He improvised on a word (days instead of nights), but with a velvety voice like his, I suppose it’s forgivable. Take a listen.

Cry Me A River, M. Buble

What can I say – this is one of my favorite songs. And Michael Buble has a gorgeous baritone, as good as Sinatra in the early years.
