Leonard Bernstein: Reflections (DVD)
ARTISTS: Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Ludwig van Beethoven, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre National de France , Leonard Bernstein

The spontaneous joy of his Broadway hits, the bold, spiritual quest of his orchestral works, his intensity and vitality as conductor, made Bernstein one of the central figures in twentieth century music. This film is a rare personal portrait of Leonard Bernstein, who triumphed as composer, conductor, writer and teacher.

In Leonard Bernstein Reflections, he discusses his Boston childhood, his musical growth at Harvard and the Curtis Institute, and the influence of great masters like Reiner, Mitropoulos, and Koussevitzky. He shares his feelings on the primacy of tonal music, and speculates on the nature of the creative process. Never before has there been such a personal portrait of Bernstein told through his own words.

It brings a renewed appreciation of this gifted man and his far-reaching influence. Repertoire (Bonus): Including a complete performance of Bernstein conducting Milhaud: Le bœuf sur le toît with the Orchestre National de France.
