Notes & Reviews:

"As much as any conductor can, Leonard Bernstein owned these works. He was present at their creation, and they were at the core of not only his repertory but his very soul as a musician... if you're looking for this triumvirate of American Classics in up-to-date sound, you should be well pleased with this compilation... even in 1984 Lenny was still capable of galvanizing an orchestra in this repertory as no one else ever could..." -American Record Guide
