 Bernstein as the Inerpreter of a generation April 6, 2017 By Gregory Goldstein (Vallejo, CA) See All My Reviews "The compositions are timeless and classic. It is the conductor that promotes the 5 star banner. I am unabashedly a life long Berstein fanatic. Beginning with his Young People's Concerts of the 60's, I have been impressed with Bernstein's energy, knowledge, and consideration to his orchestra members. The charisma he projected, together with his interpretive genius, is sufficient to earn the 5 stars. If you like Leonard Berstein, you will not be diappointed." Report Abuse
