About

Young Peopleís Concerts Vol.1 comprises 17 episodes of the legendary series, which remains unmatched until today. ĎLeonard Bernstein did this better than anyone. He was brilliant Ė as a musician and as an ambassador for musicí (Whoopie Goldberg).

Awarded three Emmys and hailed by Variety as Ďa rare moment in the symbiosis of the arts and broadcastingí, Leonard Bernsteinís Young Peopleís Concerts left their mark on television history. Aired at prime-time on CBS from 1958 to 1972, 52 one-hour programmes were written and hosted by Leonard Bernstein, Ďcertainly the most influential American maestro of the 20th centuryí (New York Times). With the New York Philharmonic and guest artists providing the live music, these programmes brought musical concepts and music history to life for generations of viewers. Volume 1 includes 17 episodes - the Concerts Nos. 1-14 plus Young Performers Nos. 1-3 (featuring Seiji Ozawa and Lynn Harrell).

ĎThere had never been a communicator about music with anywhere near Bernsteinís brilliance, humour, energy, reach and importanceí Ė New York Times
