Leonard Bernstein was without question the greatest musician America ever produced. As an inspirational teacher and renowned conductor he was the nation's musical ambassador to the world, and his work as a composer bridged gaps an broke down barriers, reaching audiences way beyond the normal boundaries of classical music. This celebration of Bernstein's centenary brings together all of the acclaimed Naxos recordings of his music conducted by his protegee Marin Alsop as well as new and world premiere recordings, and an insightful documentary film in which colleagues and family sum up this boundlessly brilliant and charismatic musical giant of the 20th century.
