Peruse snapshots in time — years and moments where Bernstein’s life forever changed, and Bernstein forever changed the life of others; pillars of his legacy, and the people who helped formed it; explorations of favorite compositions and performances; reflections on, and from, friends and family; exclusive audio and video footage; Bernstein’s poetry and letters; quotes, fun facts, shareable GIFs and social media, and more.
Check back often for more intersections, paradoxes, and evergreen wisdom of the one-and-only Bernstein. We’ll be adding new collections — and new features within existing collections — throughout the Bernstein Centennial.
