These televised programs were awarded 3 Emmys and introduced an entire generation to the joys of classical music.
Bernstein, who considered these concerts a favorite activity, is completely at ease and able to clarify difficult concepts and music for his young audience without condescension. He's an interactive teacher, and his audience enjoys him.
Taped over 15 years, the recording quality changes as the technology advanced, but the programs remain fresh and an invaluable tool for teaching. 1500 mins. in 25 programs on 9 DVDs.
A marvelous and effective appreciation tool!
