Posted February 23, 2018
Deutsche Grammophon is marking the Leonard Bernstein centenary (born 25 August 1918) in suitably monumental style. Bernstein – Complete Recordings on Deutsche Grammophon and Decca contains all Bernstein’s recordings as a conductor for DG and Decca, together with his complete DG/Unitel DVD catalogue. This landmark set proudly celebrates the compositional heritage bequeathed the world by one of the 20th century’s most important musical figures, and includes his music for ballet, opera and musicals, his incidental music, scores for film, orchestra and chamber ensembles, vocal scores and piano music. Comprising 121 CDs, 36 DVDs and a Blu-ray Audio disc, it features such legendary recordings as Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde (1981), Bizet’s Carmen (1972), works by Stravinsky and Shostakovich and, of course, the complete symphonies of Beethoven and Mahler.
