The San Francisco Symphony conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas celebrates the music of Leonard Bernstein in a very special Opening Night gala at Carnegie Hall.
 
The Orchestra’s sold-out Carnegie Hall concert kicked off a New York City-wide tribute to composer Leonard Bernstein, who would have celebrated his 90th birthday this year. The 90-minute DVD, recorded in high definition and 5.1 surround sound, features music from a wide variety of Bernstein’s stage works, from such early triumphs as West Side Story and On the Town to later works Mass and A Quiet Place.
 
 
Praise for A Celebration of Leonard Bernstein:
 
“…a joyous celebration of a great musical spirit.”
Pittsburgh Tribune Review 

“It’s hard to bring off this kind of populist mix without seeming to pander.  But Michael Tilson Thomas has the breadth, depth, and showmanship to do it.”
The New York Times

“…performed with rare, infectious gusto by Thomas and an all-star ensemble.”
New York Daily News

“…a joyous tribute…”
Associated Press

“…re-creating the master’s music with an exuberance that makes everyone glad to be there.  A great show all around.”
Musical America
 
“…hearing this great American orchestra play this music, one realizes that it takes an American orchestra to play it.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“…this is a show with something to say.”
Los Angeles Times
