In a career spanning nearly five decades, Leonard Bernstein achieved worldwide renown and recognition as a conductor and composer, a teacher and author and a gifted pianist.  He was a musician of unparalleled versatility which is on display in this new reissue which features his CBS concerto and orchestral works recordings.

This 80-CD box set includes every concerto, symphonic poem, overture, ballet, dance, march, that Bernstein recorded in New York, as well as in London, Paris and Israel,  between 1950 and 1976 by nearly every composer in the standard repertoire: from Bach and Vivaldi to Barber, Bartók and Ligeti, as well as many of the most prominent 20th-century Americans, such as Ives, Copland, Gershwin and Carter. And, of course, copious recordings of Bernstein's own compositions.

Most notably, there are multiple recordings of the Beethoven and Brahms concertos and of Bernstein's concertante works, as well as music by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Liszt, Tchaikovsky, Dvoák, Ravel, Rachmaninoff, Sibelius and Nielsen.

Featured throughout are some of the greatest soloists of the day, among them the violinists Isaac Stern, Zino Francescatti and Pinchas Zukerman, the pianists Glenn Gould, Rudolf Serkin, Philippe Entremont, André Watts, Gary Graffman and Robert Casadesus as well as Bernstein himself.
