Notes & Reviews:

'Bernstein conducts Bernstein' is the ultimate tribute to the legendary composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein - specially created to celebrate the 90th anniversary of his birth on August 25th, 2008. This 10-disc set includes all of Bernstein's own definitive recordings of his greatest works as a composer - many recorded during his historic years as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic - from his first exuberant Broadway musical 'On the Town' and the explosive 'Symphonic Dances from West Side Story' to his heartbreakingly beautiful "Kaddish" symphony and the radiant hope of the 'Chichester Psalms' - as well as the complete world premiere recording of 'Mass'.
