HAPPY BIRTHDAY 

LEONARD BERNSTEIN!

BORN 100 YEARS AGO TODAY
AUGUST 25, 2018


Leonard Bernstein was a path-breaking conductor, composer, pianist, recording artist, and public spokesman for great music.

There have been countless celebrations of his birthday this year. Here's one notable discussion of Bernstein's "Serenade for Violin and Orchestra (after Plato's Symposium)", by Sharon Roffman, who performed this remarkable piece with Michael Stern and the Kansas City Symphony earlier this year.
