2018 marks 100 years since Leonard Bernstein’s birth. This set contains performances of and musical analysis of:

“The historical significance of these American Decca tapings is that they represent Bernstein’s first recorded thoughts on the mainstream classics…. This may be Bernstein with one hand tied behind his back but there’s no mistaking the arrival of a serious and dedicated artist.” GRAMOPHONE
“He brings a composer’s insight to the labyrinthine structure of Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ and unpicks it with mind-boggling momentum. He injects authentic Yankee mettle into Dvorák ‘New World’ Symphony; his Tchaikovsky ‘Pathétique’ is riven with ambiguities. His ‘at the piano’ analyses of the music complete this indispensable portrait of the then 34-year-old firebrand.” CLASSIC FM
