No Trouble with Tahiti

In this recording of Bernstein’s “Trouble in Tahiti” the Radio Orchestra Munich gives a fine presentation. I wasn’t very familiar with this piece, but I was pleased to hear classic Bernstein.

I got the impression that the symphonic dances were an afterthought. Other than that, “Trouble in Tahiti” alone is worth the cost.
