The Best of Bernstein
Leonard Bernstein was a man of his era whose legacy transcends time. He was at once a brilliant composer, a dynamic conductor, a sensitive pianist, a teacher, an activist, and a humanitarian. And underlying all was an uncanny, unmatched, ability to communicate. The 3-CD set The Best of Bernstein is a celebration of his life in music. This album is not available for purchase; you can only get it by supporting your non-commercial classical music station.
Twenty-six cuts on three CDs include selections from Bernstein’s Candide, West Side Story, On the Town, and Chichester Psalms, plus music by Copland, Stravinsky, Beethoven and Haydn; Bernstein as pianist and conductor in the Rhapsody in Blue and Mozart’s Concerto No. 17, and many other works, all conducted by Leonard Bernstein.
