Leonard Bernstein's "Kaddish" Symphony interweaves an ancient Jewish prayer for the dead with a text written by Bernstein himself that violently challenges God's apparent disinterest in the face of human suffering, before finally reaching an accommodation with the Creator. This conflict is reflected by music that is by turns aggressive, even dissonant, and serenely harmonious. Bernstein dedicated the work's late 1963 premiere "To the Beloved Memory of John F. Kennedy." Recorded on 03/17/2019. (#34689)
