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))

The photos are priceless. (Bloomberg News)


Always on the forefront of American culture, whether it was composing for Broadway or the symphonic orchestra, hiring the first women musicians, defending the rights of African Americans, promoting public education, or championing new composers and works, Bernstein was a powerful force who ignited social, political, and cultural change. Through the text of Burton Bernstein, Leonard's younger brother, as well as contributions from other prominent writers, historians, and journalists, Bernstein's remarkable career (spanning almost six decades) and his widespread impact in many areas will be examined and celebrated.This beautifully designed and highly illustrated book will showcase some 100-150 photographs, excerpts from Bernstein's writings, reviews, posters, and other ephemera. The book will be published in August 2008, marking the 90th birthday of Bernstein, and the 50th anniversary of Bernstein's first season as Music Director of the Philharmonic. The Philharmonic will be promoting and planning events worldwide for the 50th anniversary - a Bernstein Year (2008-2009).

Additional essays from leading journalists, historians, and musicians - including Pulitzer Prize winners John Adams and Tim Page, Joseph Horowitz, and Ira Glazer - discuss Bernstein's impact on his times as well as the political and social climate in America that shaped Bernstein's activism (women's rights, civil rights, politics, etc.).

5.0 von 5 Sternen The ideal coffee table book for music lovers 21. November 2008
Von Sean Hickey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This incredibly handsome piece, in celebration of the Leonard Bernstein 90th year, concentrates on the conductor/composer's incredible relationship with the New York Philharmonic. Frankly, the price is a real bargain and well worth it for the photos alone, many of which are extremely rare. The forwards from Barbara Haws and Burton Bernstein are incredibly moving and informative and answer the question, "why do we need another book on Bernstein?" He was perhaps the great musician of 20th century America and this book offers us several new looks at the great man.

4.0 von 5 Sternen For Those Who Can't Get Enough of Bernstein.... 19. August 2008
Von Oscar Levant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Although this book was originally scheduled for publication on 8-22, I received mine today, 8-19, a testament to Amazon.com's speedy delivery service. It's difficult to categorize this volume, falling somewhere between a coffee table picture book and a personal photo album. Bernstein's brother apparently came up with the idea, this in his brother's 90th year. There are articles and remembrances from mostly his years with the NYP, written by Alan Rich, Paul Boyer and others with Burton Bernstein commenting on each. There is a good amount of new black and white photos strewn among the 207 pages with lots of newspaper reproductions, sidebars and fancy graphics that I found a bit distracting and, again, make me want to put it on a coffee table rather than store more formally on a book shelf. But for those of us who cannot get enough of Bernstein and continue to re-read Humphrey Burton's masterful biography, this is a nice adjunct. It makes us miss him all over again.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A great biography with text and photos 3. Oktober 2013
Von Susan Fleet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Unlike the large and lengthy biographies of Leonard Bernstein, this offers a fresh new approach, with several different authors giving their impressions of "Lenny" at various times of his career. The photographs are many and wonderful, adding little known snippits of Bernstein's life and career.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Complete and concise 4. Mai 2014
Von Anna Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This autobiography answered my questions about LB. It was clearly
written with interesting details without sounding like gossip. Enough
information both on LB.s musical development and concerns and
on his life
