Leonard Bernstein is one of the most widely performed composers of the 20th-century * Works successfully bridge divide between classical and popular idioms * Music combines jazz-inspired energy, theatrical panache and active stylistic eclecticism * Acclaimed stage works include West Side Story, On the Town and Candide * Dance collaborations with Jerome Robbins including Fancy Free, Facsimile and The Dybbuk * One of the most admired conductors of the post-war era, particularly associated with the New York, Israel and Vienna Philharmonics, Boston and London Symphony Orchestras and Tanglewood Festival * Important role as an educator, including pioneering work on television * Output recorded extensively on Sony and Deutsche Grammophon

Works by Leonard Bernstein include:

Symphonic Dances from 'West Side Story' (1960) for orchestra

Looking Ahead: In January, the Pacific Symphony presents an All-Bernstein program, with performances of Symphony No. 2 "Age of Anxiety", Slava!, Arias and Barcarolles, the Candide Overture, and selections from his musical theater masterworks, West Side Story, Trouble in Tahiti, and Wonderful Town. A full production of Bernstein’s MASS is presented by the Philadelphia Orchestra from April 30 until May 2. Later in May, the New York City Ballet presents West Side Story Suite, with Jerome Robbins’s original choreography and, in June, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra presents Candide, directed by Kevin Newbury.

"Bernstein's music is cross-over without compromise, a corpus of work that simply had to be." — Independent
