“This version of Mass, which Alsop regards as Bernstein’s masterpiece, is the new reference version. Her accounts of the symphonies are fabulous, uniformly.” — Classics Today

Leonard Bernstein was, without question, one of the greatest musicians America ever produced. As an inspirational teacher and renowned conductor, he was the nation’s musical ambassador to the world. His work as a composer bridged gaps and broke down barriers, reaching audiences way beyond the typical boundaries of classical music.

This collection, released in celebration of Bernstein’s centenary, brings together all the acclaimed Naxos recordings of his music conducted by his protegee Marin Alsop. Also included is an insightful documentary DVD in which colleagues and family sum up this boundlessly brilliant and charismatic musical giant of the twentieth century.
