  • $ 149.99

Following the tremendously successful release of Leonard Bernstein: The Symphony Edition, Sony Classical is delighted to announce a new reissue from the iconic conductor-composer's CBS/American Columbia discography, Leonard Bernstein Edition. Virtually every remaining orchestral album has been collected in a single extraordinary 80-CD box set. That means every concerto, symphonic poem, overture, ballet, dance, march, etc. that Bernstein recorded in New York between 1950 and 1976 (plus some in London, Paris and Israel) by nearly every composer in the standard repertoire: from Bach and Vivaldi to Barber, Bart„k 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, Dvorˆk, 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 and the pianists Glenn Gould, Rudolf Serkin, Philippe Entremont, Andr_ Watts, Gary Graffman and Robert Casadesus as well as Bernstein himself. Leonard Bernstein Edition includes a perfect bound book housed in an LP-sized box.
