Editorial Reviews

The greatest pianist among the conductors, the greatest conductor among composers, the greatest composer among pianists ... He is a universal genius.
Arthur Rubenstein on Leonard Bernstein

Lift-off LP-sized box (30cm x 30cm), featuring iconic portrait of Bernstein.

40 page deluxe LP-size book (in three languages E,F,G) including foreword by Bernsteins daughter (Jamie Bernstein) and articles by Bernsteins biographer (Humphrey Burton) and editor of The Bernstein Letters (Nigel Simeone).

Four color coded compartments beneath the book to hold the CDs in original jackets.

As a special DVD bonus, The Making of West Side Story is also included in the set.

Leonard Bernstein bestrode the musical scene in the second half of the 20th century like few others. For the last decade of his life he recorded exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon, having also made several recordings for the label in the 1970s, starting with his celebrated Carmen in 1973.

Bernsteins complete recordings for the label are now offered on two deluxe box sets, presented in their original sleeves, with a 40-page LP-size booklet, with new essays by Bernstein biographer Humphrey Burton and Nigel Simeone, editor of the recently published The Leonard Bernstein Letters, and a specially-written foreword by Bernsteins daughter Jamie Bernstein.

We present VOLUME ONE, which comprises Bernsteins complete recordings of composers from Beethoven to Liszt, and includes all of Bernstein s recordings of his own works, those of Brahms, Copland and Haydn, and individual CDs of Bruckner, Debussy, Dvo ák, Elgar, Franck, Hindemith and many American composers. VOLUME TWO, ranging from Mahler to Wagner, will appear in 2015.

Topic From this Discussion
Way overpriced compared to amazon.co.uk
I bet that the price of this set will soon settle in the $100 range for several reasons. Many collectors who have purchased the Columbia Bernstein symphony set will not want to have two versions of the same symphonies. Also, newer collectors will already own several of the discs included in... Read More
