Leonard Bernstein

About

Electrifying conductor, brilliant composer, gifted pianist, inspiring teacher: Leonard Bernstein is one of the most famous and influential musicians of all time. Highlights of this two-disc setof the Maestro’s legendary recordings for Deutsche Grammophon include his incandescent interpretations of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Mahler, composers for whom he felt a profound affinity. And Bernstein’s lifelong dedication to American music is vividly illustrated with Gershwin, Barber and, of course, his own iconic West Side Story. This compilation offers a perfect introduction to Bernstein as conductor. Highlighting some of classical music’s most beloved works: Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’; Mahler’s Adagietto from Symphony no.5; Barber’s Adagio for Strings; the finale of Beethoven’s ‘Choral’ Symphony; Gerswhin’s Rhapsody in Blue; Dvořák’s ‘From the New World’; and excerpts from Mahler’s Symphony no.2 – a work of huge significance to the new Netflix Bradley Cooper biopic, are also included.
