Leonard Bernstein made his legendary conducting debut at the New York Philharmonic in 1943, at the young age of 25. We celebrate the life and work of Leonard Bernstein with his younger brother Burton Bernstein and New York Philharmonic archivist and historian Barbara Haws. They’ve collaborated on a new book, Leonard Bernstein: American Original.
