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.

CD 1 16: BEETHOVEN The 9 Symphonies; Overtures; Piano Concertos nos. 3 5 (with Krystian Zimerman); String Quartets arranged for Orchestra; The Amnesty International Concert; The Final Concert (Symphony no. 7); The Berlin Wall Concert (Symphony no. 9); Missa solemnis; Fidelio

CD 17 32: BERNSTEIN in all his glory the 3 Symphonies and other orchestral works, ballets, theatreworks from On the Town (Michael Tilson Thomas conducting), Candide, West Side Story, A Quiet Place and A White House Cantata (Kent Nagano conducting)

With much deliberation I took the bold step of buying the box set and just ignore the critic who said some of the such as Beethoven symphony 9 as the here 2 version both of them were enjoyable.The slow version make me appreciate the live version.Thes sound is ok and some cd has demonstration quality and now I have bought new Akg 702 headphone I can really enjoy the music.This is a limited edition and I am sure that later you pay more from this box set from third part seller.Highly recommended from those do not like Bernstein.I have all his box and now I am looking forward volume 2 box set.

I bought this on Amazon.co.uk, as it was inexplicably (a lot) cheaper there.

Fantastic. If you're a Bernstein lover, there has to be something here for you. Not only does it give you a good survey of Bernstein's own compositions, but also includes a lot of him conducting the works of others. And, for the most part, it's all great.

The last disc in the collection is actually a DVD-Video of his rehearsals of a re-recording of the music from West Side Story using opera singers rather than an actual Broadway or Hollywood cast. I have to say that watching the video is a lot more interesting than listening to the result, but the result is pretty good anyway.
