"The set has a lot to recommend it: strong atmosphere, plentiful musical detail, dialogue to appreciate, real characters and much fine singing." (Gramophone)
"…Each singer gives everything he or she has … The expressive colourings of the orchestra are made vivid, not to say raucous, by the emphatic treatment that Bernstein lavishes on them … there is no doubting the passion which the conductor feels for the work … it's a moving experience." International Record Review
A musician of unparalleled versatility, Leonard Bernstein achieved worldwide renown in a career spanning nearly five decades - as an inspiring conductor and teacher, as a wide-ranging composer and author, as a gifted pianist.
