LEONARD BERNSTEIN – Young People’s Concerts, Vol. 2
(4-Blu-ray Disc Box Set)


Awarded three Emmys and hailed by Variety as “as rare moment in the symbiosis of the arts and broadcasting”, Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts left their mark on television history. Aired at prime-time on CBS from 1958 to 1972, more than 50 one-hour programs were written and hosted by Leonard Bernstein, “certainly the most influential American maestro of the 20th century” (The New York Times). With the New York Philharmonic and guest artists providing the live music, these programs brought musical concepts and music history to life for generations of viewers.
