-----

Bernstein also had an affinity with Brahms, whose music he began conducting as a student in 1940, studying the composer's works at Tanglewood with his mentor, the renowned Serge Koussevitsky. Bernstein led the Boston Symphony Orchestra in passionate, fiery performances of Brahms's Symphonies Nos. 2 and 4 at Tanglewood in 1972. His charisma on the podium during those concerts can be enjoyed on a Medici Arts [EuroArts] DVD.
