Leonard Bernstein at Work by : Steve J. Sherman
Leonard Bernstein is internationally renowned as one of the most significant composers; musical inspirations; and creative minds of the 20th century. In addition; many consider him to be the greatest American conductor of all time. He is legendary; not only for his brilliant music-making but equally for his extreme passion; raw charisma; powerful convictions; and insatiable appetite for life.
This remarkable photographic essay of Leonard Bernstein during the last six years of his life gives us rare insight into the disparate; sometimes vastly conflicting elements that shaped his work and deeply influenced everyone who was drawn into his inner world. It contains approximately 200 black-and-white photographs; most previously unpublished; taken on and off stage during 20 different events or concerts; along with personal comments and remembrances from over 50 of his colleagues; friends; and relatives.
The foreword is by Hollywood superstar Lauren Bacall; the preface by Jamie Bernstein (Leonard Bernstein's eldest daughter); and the introduction by James M. Keller; Leonard Bernstein scholar-in-residence at the New York Philharmonic.
These vivid images reveal Leonard Bernstein at work in his final years; as mortality encroached upon his unrelenting energy and indefatigable creative genius.
