bernstein 100 (presented by kent nagano) (in the inside music series)
“In today’s special edition, conductor Kent Nagano reveals a colourful selection of music – from the inside.
As a former student of Leonard Bernstein, Kent remembers an emphasis on a broad education that included visiting art galleries and reading great works of literature, alongside studying musical scores with the maestro.
His choice of music includes two dramatic works that for Kent, prove that Bernstein was not only a larger than life figure, but an outstanding American composer.”
