[Disc] 4DVD - 2008
There has probably never been a conductor able to combine the highest musical standards with personal warmth in the way that Leonard Bernstein did. Bernstein not only had at his command a rare musicality that melded emotion with analysis, he was also uniquely able to convey that musicality both as a musician and as a teacher. The present boxed set brings together outstanding video recordings that allow us to see and hear the intensity and the thrilling, emotional way in which Bernstein communicated his interpretations to his musicians and to his public. The result is a magnificent tribute to this brilliant conductor and what would have been his 90th birthday.
