Notes and Editorial Reviews

"How much do you like Leonard Bernstein? Carnegie Hall is betting you like him a lot as it has collaborated with Sony to prepare this 10-CD set, The Original Jacket Collection: Bernstein Conducts Bernstein. It contains every album Bernstein made of his own music for CBS Records, beginning with his 1950 recording of the "Symphony No. 2, The Age of Anxiety" -- predating his tenure with the New York Philharmonic by nearly a decade -- to the ballet "Dybbuk" in 1974, recorded with the New York City Ballet Orchestra several years after his departure. This was Bernstein's peak period in terms of his popularity, fame, credibility, and celebrity, although once he started with the New York Philharmonic his work as a Read more composer came to a screeching halt. Despite the date range indicated above, a heavy concentration of these recordings is centered in [stereo] 1960 and 1963, indicating an effort in these years to schedule his work in large blocks amid the staggering number of recordings of works by other composers Bernstein made on his CBS contract...This set is amazingly comprehensive..."
