Summary
  • Chronicles the life and career of the composer and musician, focusing on his range of musical compositions, from "West Side Story" to "Kaddish."
  • "Leonard Bernstein stood at the epicenter of twentieth-century American musical life. His creative gifts knew no boundaries as he moved easily from the podium to the piano, and then to television with his nationally celebrated Young People's Concerts, which introduced an entire generation to the joy of classical music. Drawing on personal interviews, archival research, and his own immersion in the music, Allen Shawn delves beneath the trappings of fame, presenting Bernstein as a complex and deeply intelligent artist whose accomplishment as a composer is too often undervalued."--Back cover of paperback edition
