From 1958 through 1973, Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic thrilled audiences with wonderful concert experiences presented in a sparkling music-with-commmentary format: The Young People’s Concert. Viewed nationwide on CBS television, and eventually telecast around the world, The Young People’s Concerts turned an entire generation into music lovers.
25 Hours on 9 discs. NTSC, Region: All. Full Screen 4:3.
"This nine-disc collector's edition begins with the first concert in 1958 and runs through the last broadcast in 1973. Having grown up with these programs, I thought I remembered them vividly. But viewed in the context of television's current anemic involvement with arts education, Bernstein's achievement seems more astounding than ever...he was convinced that with the right teacher, television could be the greatest tool for musical education. He would educate by entertaining." - Anthony Tommasini, New York Times
