Leonard Bernstein was a musical triple threat--conductor, composer, and pianist. This 4 CD set from the Artone series illustrates his talents well. The notes at the outset portray his life, his development, the challenges that he faced. The 4 CDs lay out a portrait of his music and his conducting and even piano playing. Let's take a look. CD # 1 has just one piece, Beethoven's Symphony # 3.

As I listen to it, I recall when he discussed this on his TV series for young listeners. He spoke of how Beethoven defied expectations with the opening several notes. It was poignant to revisit his conducting of this work, having listened to his lesson so many years ago (he conducts the New York Stadium Orchestra [???] in a 1953 performance). The orchestra appears to me to play well under Bernstein's leadership. The first movement captures the spirit of this composition nicely. The tempo is appropriate (Bernstein sometimes took liberties with dynamics for effect, leading to some criticism). While the first movement is not always as "taut" as I would like, I believe that it is nicely conducted and played. The second movement? Here is where critics can appear justified for their comments. The pace is so slow as to almost fall apart. Gardiner's version runs 12:41. Bernstein's? 17:47. Not a best practice, from my viewpoint. However, the scherzo, third movement, is lively and works well, an animated piece of work. The fourth movement plays out in 10:42 for Gardiner and 12:14 for Bernstein. Bernstein's is a good, solid version, and it closes out okay. But Gardiner's 4th movement simply has more life to it (I played his finale immediately after Bernstein's).
