 excellent robust Haydn May 7, 2012 By K. BAKER (HEBER CITY, UT) See All My Reviews "A few years ago the BBC polled 100 top conductors asking them who was the greatest conductor of all time. Bernstein was #2 Karlos Kleiber was #1. Bernstein had an affinity for Haydn, and these performances of some of the masses are hard to beat. Included is the Mass in Time of War, a concert known at the time-- during the Vietnam War-- as Leonard Bernstein's Mass for Peace. And I can't help but mention that this was a one time live performance and we had seats in center mid-orchestra." Report Abuse
