As a composer, Bernstein left a far-reaching legacy that includes three symphonies, a film score of singular distinction, (On the Waterfront), and an important body of stage works, including one of the cornerstones of American musical theater, West Side Story (1957). The first American-born conductor to attain international superstardom, Bernstein made a profound impression on audiences; his podium manner was dynamic, even flamboyant, to an extent never before witnessed.

Bernstein's extroverted manner attracted much criticism from those who dismissed him as a mere exhibitionist; his advocates, however, far outnumbered his detractors. Born in Lawrence, MA, Bernstein made his mark first as a composer.

He attended Harvard University, where he studied with Walter Piston among other distinguished figures. Occasionally he wrote popular songs on the side using the pseudonym Lenny Amber ("amber" being the English translation of the word "Bernstein"). His works of the 1940s, both weighty and light, brought him considerable acclaim; the single year of 1944 saw the premieres of two especially well-received scores, the Symphony No. 1, "Jeremiah", and the ballet Fancy Free.

Through his association with the New York Philharmonic and a neverending stream of guest engagements worldwide, Bernstein became particularly renowned as an interpreter of Mahler and Copland; he did much to carve out the prominent place in the orchestral concert repertory that both composers now maintain. Already well-known by the time he took over the New York Philharmonic, Bernstein became truly famous in 1958, with the first of his series of televised Young People's Concerts, fondly remembered by many as their introduction to the world of classical music. Among the first group of students to receive training at the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood, Bernstein soon became the institution's guiding light, serving as teacher and mentor for generations of musicians. Though he remained a giant of the podium until the very end, Bernstein curtailed his conducting activities in later years in order to spend more time composing. Little of Bernstein's music from the 1970s on has attained the same level of popularity achieved by his earlier works; still, it comprises a distinguished, substantial body of work that includes Mass (1971), the opera A Quiet Place (1983), and the song cycle Arias and Barcarolles (1988).

Upon reflection, Mahler's music was one of the most successful revivals of the 20th century. Bernstein was the perfect exponent, for his deep affinity for Mahler's music was obvious to anyone. There can be no doubt that Bernstein empathized with Mahler on a profoundly personal level. Both were complicated men, their musical ambitions forever conflicted between conducting and composing. Both men were omnivorous intellectuals; both were subject to tremendous mood swings that could be all but incapacitating. Most important, though, is the fact that both Bernstein and Mahler distilled their joys and sufferings into art, the proof of which may be found in this set.

Tim Page Leonard Bernstein became Mahler's ambassador in the post-war world. He did more than just unveil the masterly craftsmanship of Mahler's music. His performances situated Mahler in a full-blown universe of action, thought, feeling and music making never previously explored on this scale by a creative musician.

The discovery was new and staggering. It catapulted Mahler to the pinnacle of worldwide recognition. It turned this ever-inquisitive, rambling composer into a classical figure of a stature that had hardly existed before. At the same time, Bernstein found, in Mahler's uniqueness, a secret rapport with his own artistic inclinations, which Mahler's music seemed virtually to foreshadow. He simply had to serve this composer, a man cut from the same cloth as himself.
