“I hate music”: a little window into the musical world of Leonard Bernstein, to celebrate the centennial of his birthday. It is inspired by his Jewish origin and his relationship with New York, the city where he lived for most of his life, which was source of continual inspiration in his music.
Leonard Bernstein is one of the leading exponents of American musical culture in the 20th Century. Composer, conductor, pianist, educator, philanthropist, philosopher, pacifist, TV Star… A genious with a big personality, who had unconventional opinions and irresistible charisma.
