Bernstein Live: Special Edition for Teachers

Regular price $10.00

Tax included.
Special package set includes CD with companion teacher’s guide "Life without music is unthinkable: Music without life is academic. That is why my contact with music is a total embrace." -Leonard Bernstein 

Anyone who has had a personal encounter with Leonard Bernstein can attest to his vitality, his charisma, and his insatiable passion for music, teaching, and life. Bernstein's performances and lectures always conveyed this passion, as the meaning of each note and every word resonated in the hearts and minds of his listeners.

To celebrate Bernstein's powerful presence and legendary live performances, the New York Philharmonic released Bernstein Live!, a 10-CD set featuring Leonard Bernstein as conductor, soloist, and educator. The present single CD compilation, derived from the complete set, was selected with music teachers and classroom educators in mind. It's not just a CD - it's a package and teacher's guide filled with information about the life and times of the composers, teaching strategies to engage kids in their own hands-on explorations of the musical works, all in the spirit of inquiry and love of music embodied by the New York Philharmonic.
