Composed By – Leonard Bernstein. Candide - 1974 Broadway Cast Recording (2xCD, Album). Masterworks Broadway.
Fortunately, the original cast album was recorded by Columbia Records, so the music thrived. The recording sold well, and Bernstein's score gained a sort of cult status. As music director of the Scottish Opera in Glasgow, John Mauceri took the opportunity to examine Candide one more time in 1988, with a production that included even more music, including a new "Entr'acte" and a recurring chorale, "Universal Good," created by Mr. Bernstein from a long-discarded aria. Jonathan Miller and John Wells directed and further adapted Hugh Wheeler's script.

Candide, as a musical/opera, has a highly complex history, having gone through multiple alterations since it first premiered in 1956 with a book by Lillian Hellman.
Leonard Bernstein's score for Candide is undoubtably his, and quite possibly the theater's, best writing; yet, even on this so-called complete recording, no one has ever been able to capture the magic to any degree of satisfaction. This CD seems to have been recorded live from the opera house stage, so distant sound the singers and tinny the orchestra. Being opera performers, no one knows how to act a song; the Old Lady's exhuberant tango is limp and lifeless, as are many of Cunegonde's songs. It really is a shame.
