Conductor Eric Stern explores Bernstein's glittering music for the stage, as we join the celebrations for the composer's centenary. Taking his lead from the light music of mentor and friend, Aaron Copland, Bernstein channelled his enthusiasm for musicals and dance into a string of successful Broadway shows and we hear highlights of his unique musical blend or jazz, classical and pure entertainment.
