“Composer, conductor, pianist, teacher, classicist, and popularizer, as mucha t home with the Broadway musical as on the operatic stage and the symphony orchestra podium, Leonard Bernstein was an innovator who risked his prodigious talents in many directions, a truly American phenomenon who appeared all over the world in the half century he spent with music. Highly illustrated."

- Ned Ludd

“One of Schonberg's most famous criticisms of Bernstein [to whom he referred as] ‘the Peter Pan of music’, written after the famous 6 April, 1962 performance before which Bernstein announced that he disagreed with pianist Glenn Gould's interpretation of Brahms' Piano Concerto #1 but was going to conduct it anyway because he found it fascinating. Schonberg chided Bernstein in print, suggesting that he should have either refrained from publicizing his disagreement, backed out of the concert, or imposed his own will on Gould.”

- Harold C. Schoenberg, THE GREAT CONDUCTORS
