Description
The essays within this career portrait do not simply retell the Leonard Bernstein story; instead, Bernstein's brother Burton, together with New York Philharmonic archivist and historian Barbara Haws, brings together a distinguished group of contributors to examine Leonard's remarkable relationship with New York City and its celebrated orchestra, richly illustrated with black and white photos.

"Each piece is by an author who knows well whereof he writes and openly admires, even adores, Bernstein. Broadcaster-conductor Bill McLaughlin discusses Bernstein as conductor, with the maestro's performance scores and DVDs before him. Music historian Carol J. Oja incisively surveys Bernstein's Broadway shows. Composer John Adams tells what Bernstein has meant to him, from his boyhood hearing of Bernstein's famous, nationally televised young people's concerts to learning from Bernstein what it was to be an American composer. Others treat Bernstein as humanitarian and social activist, as music educator, as touring cultural diplomat, and as director of a great orchestra. Music lovers may award best-of-show to James Keller's piece on Bernstein as interpreter and champion of Mahler. Interspersed with this wealth of well-considered commentary are the smart and affectionate recollections of Burton Bernstein, concluding with his eulogy for 'my brother, Lenny.' All this, and scads of pictures, too! A flat-out wonderful book."Booklist (starred review)
