Psalms soar heavenward on waves of irrepressible rhythm, and a keyboard masterpiece is painted in kaleidoscopic new colors. Commissioned by the Dean of England’s Chichester Cathedral, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms has the rhythmic zest of West Side Story, scored for treble voice, chorus, and an orchestra that features brass, two harps, strings, and percussion. Ravel’s orchestration of Mussorgsky’s piano suite Pictures at an Exhibition thrills from its opening Promenade to the famous “Great Gate of Kiev.”
