A Tribute to Leonard Bernstein


Special Annual Edition der Wiener Philharmoniker 2018

197 concerts at home and abroad and an artistic collaboration encompassing 24 years. From 1966 until his death in 1990, the Vienna Philharmonic developed a close partnership with its Honorary Member Leonard Bernstein, one of the most colorful musical personalities of the 20th century and most important conductors in the orchestra's history.

On 152 pages, musical partners such as Christa Ludwig and 15 members of the Vienna Philharmonic provide unique glimpses of the orchestra's relationship with Leonard Bernstein. The musicians describe personal encounters and rehearsal experiences and reflect upon unforgettable concerts and tours.

This volume includes 58 photographs, most of them released here for the first time. The CD included with the book is a unique treasure - a recording of Leonard Bernstein conducting 60 Vienna Philharmonic string players in a performance of the orchestral version of Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet in C-sharp minor, op. 131.
