Leonard Bernstein – The Gift Of Music – tape 1685

Unusual subject matter for Sky One, here’s a documentary about Leonard Bernstein.

It’s a look at Bernstein’s career, including lots of archive interviews with Bernstein, who is always worth listening to, plus excerpts from performances with various orchestras.

There’s even some footage of one of Bernstein’s mentors, Aaron Copland himself, conducting his 3rd symphony, the ‘Fanfare for the Common Man’. These brief excerpts make you wish you could see the whole thing.
