Leonard Bernstein

Tuesday 14 August 2007 20:05-20:25 (Radio 3)

At the end of his life, Leonard Bernstein considered his education work his crowning achievement as a musician. His hugely energetic Young People's Concerts were shown on prime-time American television throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and syndicated all over the world.

Tom Service looks back to these landmarks of televised music education with help from people close to Bernstein, including his daughter Jamie who inspired much of their content.

Duration:

20 minutes
