Abstract:

Leonard Bernstein's passion for music was so strong and so glorious that he had to share it with the world. His performances as an orchestra conductor and pianist electrified audiences. The music he composed for the concert hall and Broadway stage filled listeners with joy and moved them to tears. Born and raised in the United States, Bernstein gained fame as a conductor at a time when all the important orchestra leaders came from Europe. His success opened doors for other talented Americans. Bernstein was equally passionate in his beliefs. He was an early supporter of Israel and a fearless spokesperson for civil rights and world peace. He is perhaps most widely remembered for the innovative musical West Side Story, and his groundbreaking 1960s television series of Young People's Concerts.--From publisher description.
