Netflix sets the stage this holiday season by releasing a film with plenty of Oscar potential with Bradley Cooper's Maestro. Cooper wears multiple hats in his follow-up of his 2018 debut, A Star is Born, co-writing, producing, directing, and starring in the film that follows the story of Leonard Bernstein. Maestro is now streaming on Netflix, and we will share the film's soundtrack with you. 

When Bradley Cooper decided to bring Leonard Bernstein's story to life, he knew he had to get the music right. In an interview with Netflix, he said, "For Maestro, I figured it was mine to mess up because I had a nuclear weapon, and that's Leonard Bernstein's music. Just the breadth of it, how diverse it is, and how moving it is." 

The film's musical climax comes when Bradley Cooper steps in the shoes of Leonard Bernstein conducting the London Symphony to Mahler's 'Resurrection' Symphony at the Ely Cathedral. Cooper is known for mastering his craft, as seen in his transformation as Jackson Maine in A Star is Born. He spent six years mastering this monumental six-minute scene in the movie. The scene is by far one of the best of 2023.
