About

• 100th Anniversary Limited Numbered Edition

• 121 CDs, 36 DVDs and 1 Blu-ray audio disc

Leonard Bernstein’s complete recordings for Deutsche Grammophon and Decca presented together for the first time with his video-taped performances on Unitel

Leonard Bernstein unquestionably was one of the most astonishing and dazzling personalities in the world of classical music. He bestrode the musical scene in the second half of the 20th century like few others: As composer, conductor, pianist, but it as a great communicator – of music and through music – that every facet of his life and legacy is bound together. The love of music (and of humanity) he shared so passionately with his fellow musicians is audibly communicated to all of us today through the recordings in this limited edition 158-disc Anniversary set.

For the last decade of his life he recorded exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon, having also made several recordings for the label in the 1970s. Bernstein’s recordings on Deutsche Grammophon and Decca capture an artist in the full flower of his creative power with deep mastery of the repertoire – and his performances with some of the world’s greatest orchestras reflect the most profound mutual respect, giving rise to one memorable performance after another.

Highlights from an Illustrious Recording Career…

• Bernstein conducting Bernstein

• The complete Beethoven symphony cycle (presented on 24-bit Blu-ray Audio with 4-channel Surround Sound), plus the Piano Concertos Nos. 1-3 with Krystian Zimerman

• Celebrated Haydn performances

• Complete Mahler Symphonies, including the famous Berlin Philharmonic recording of the Ninth (Bernstein understood and communicated the music of Mahler at a level that was positively uncanny)

• Bernstein conducting from the piano: Mozart’s Piano Concertos Nos. 15 & 17 and Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G

• Benchmark recordings of Shostakovich’s Symphonies and Stravinsky’s Les Noces (featuring Martha Argerich and Krystian Zimerman)

Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, recorded on Philips in 1981 – Bernstein described it as “The finest thing I have ever done” and Karl Böhm had this to say when he visited Bernstein during rehearsals: “For the first time, someone dares to perform this music as Wagner wrote it.”

• The American Decca Recordings for which Bernstein provided lucid, engaging explanations of such iconic works as: Beethoven’s “Eroica”, Schumann’s Second, Dvořák’s “New World”, Brahms’s Fourth and Tchaikovsky’s “Pathétique” in recordings made in 1953 / 1956

• 36 DVDs presenting Bernstein’s Unitel live recordings

• Each album presented in original jackets

• 200-page book (in Eng/Fr/Ger) with extensive documentation including:
-  A preface by Bernstein’s daughter, Jamie Bernstein; and essays from:
-  Nigel Simeone, editor of The Bernstein Letters;
-  Bernstein’s biographer, Humphrey Burton;
-  Journalist, Wolfgang Stähr;
-  Numerous photographs and facsimiles from the archives of Deutsche Grammophon and the Bernstein Estate
