Leonard Bernstein, the latest in Phaidon Books''s 20th Century Composers series, continues this workmanlike, readable collection of modern biographies, designed to fit all the essentials into fewer than 250 pages each. Author Paul Myers, a former record producer for Decca, Columbia, and Naxos, has composed a fond but clear-eyed look at this prodigal talent with the prodigal lifestyle. His excesses as well as his triumphs are examined, and his homosexuality is candidly discussed, but the book never descends to the tabloid-like depths of some other biographies of the composer of West Side Story, Candide, Trouble in Tahiti, and other works, both serious and less than serious. Myers himself seems to belong to the camp that holds that Bernstein deserved recognition primarily as a composer of important works, as opposed to mere entertainments. He is, moreover, perhaps too generous in his examination of such things as Mass, which was performed at the opening of the Kennedy Center, and is very much a souvenir of its time (the early 1970s) and place (the world of fashionable liberalism), and hard to listen to today as a result. But he discusses both Bernstein''s triumphs as a conductor and composer and his failures in work and life fairly. This is a good, readable biography, a worthwhile introduction to Bernstein''s life, and a good starting place for those who want more details. --Sarah Bryan Miller Paul Myers, Books, Entertainment, Leonard Bernstein Books>Entertainment, Phaidon Press

Leonard Bernstein (191890), creator of the Broadway masterpiece, West Side Story, was the best loved and most successful conductor of his generation. He inspired fellow American musicians, being the first native American to direct a major American orchestra, and the first to conquer Europe. This biography covers all aspects of Bernstein's career, from his extraordinary early rise to fame as a conductor to his work as a world-famous composer, including his musicals and the score for On the Waterfront. It examines the paradoxes of a man who was brilliant, articulate, witty and charming but could also be vain, egocentric and demanding. arts and literature,arts music and photography,biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,composers and musicians,home and garden,humor and entertainment,music Music, Phaidon Press Limited

ID: 2611851

As conductor, pianist, composer, television personality and, above all, communicator, Leonard Bernstein (1918 -- 90) was one of the most famous and documented musicians of the twentieth century. The creator of the Broadway masterpiece, West Side Story, Bernstein was the first American conductor to conquer Europe on its own terms, and the first classical musician to exploit the power of television. Critics rejected his flamboyant conducting style, his extravagant persona and many of his serious compositions, but to aspiring musicians he was of great influence. This new biography draws on the author's acquaintance with Bernstein over a period of twenty year, and explores the series of contradictions that are revealed in the composer's public and private worlds.
