Notes & Reviews:

To celebrate Leonard Bernstein's 90th birthday, Deutsche Grammophon has issued a number of musically and historically important performances on DVD. These DVDs document the astonishing talent and virtuosity of Bernstein in a variety of works. The concerts are taken from the 1970s and 1980s and many include Bernstein's educational introductions to the pieces. His invaluable ability to communicate music and teach the general public still astounds as much as his energy and skill on the podium.

Penguin Guide, 2011
Bernstein's outstanding complete DVD set of the Schumann symphonies (on a single disc) shows him at his very finest - electrifying in controlling tension, spirited and genial in bringing out Schumann's rich lyricism, powerful in creating the music's drama....Most remarkable of all is the Fourth, played with enormous zest.
