About this book
Bernstein was an enthusiastic letter writer and this book is the first to present a wide-ranging selection of his correspondence. They have been chosen for the insights they offer into the passions of his life - musical and personal - and the extravagant scope of his musical and extra-musical activities.
Leonard Bernstein was a charismatic and versatile musician - a brilliant conductor who attained international super-star status, and a composer of Broadway musicals (West Side Story), symphonies (Age of Anxiety), choral works (Chichester Psalms), film scores (On the Waterfront), and more. This book presents a selection of his correspondence.
