Peter Bernstein conducts 2 very special concerts of his father's music this month in Dublin and London, featuring director John Landis. Appropriate when you think of the unique history both of these cities have with EB's music. Many scores were recorded in Dublin and London during the 70s, 80s and 90s, with Elmer especially enjoying the lush surroundings of the Emerald Isle whilst owning a house there.

More information about the concerts in the UK & Ireland this week can be found here. Furthermore, here's Peter speaking with me about his father coupled with 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. For sonic perfection, I used the Royal Scottish National Orchestra's performance conducted by the composer and recorded at City Halls, Glasgow by Jonathan Allen. It's a beautiful recording and reminds me how much I miss those RSNO albums from Varese.

I hope you can make it along to either the Dublin or London concerts and support the best of live orchestral muisc, they will be unforgettable. Much like Elmer Bernstein's music.
