With a new introduction by the author
'Burton's style is spare and unobtrusive: the picture he paints is a vivid one. So much energy. So much intelligence ... Burton also demonstrates that behind Leonard Bernstein's flamboyance (and the increasingly embarrassing public behaviour) there remained honesty of purpose and generosity of spirit. This biography is imbued with the same virtues. It is a book of exceptional quality." -The Times
"Humphrey Burton has written a book worthy of a great man." - Daily Telegraph
'This book brings Bernstein's exuberant vitality to the page, showing why he became one of the most celebrated musical figures of the [twentieth] century." - Gramophone
'The richness of the tapestry makes all the names, dates and places a compelling read, since at every turn we are in the company of an exceedingly alive man."- Opera

Faber & Faber, London
Humphrey Burton was a friend and professional colleague of Leonard Bernstein for thirty years. He read music and history at Cambridge University and joined the BBC in 1955, becoming its first head of music and arts programs a decade later, and in 1978 founding and hosting the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition. He retired from management at the age of 50 and has since worked freelance as an impresario and prize-winning director of filmed operas, concerts, and documentaries in Europe and the USA In Los Angeles he was guest director of the Hollywood Bowl and at Tanglewood, Massachusetts he produced Bernstein's elaborate "70th Birthday Bash". He directed almost two hundred music films with Bernstein: this unrivaled closeness made him the ideal choice as biographer. Burton lives in Suffolk in 2001.
A new edition of Humphrey Burton's celebrated biography of Leonard Bernstein, published to coincide with the centenary of his birth. With a new introduction by the author.
