Leonard Bernstein

Leonard Bernstein

Humphrey Burton
4.2/5 (207 ratings)
'You will not find a more devoted, thorough, loving and surprising book on the life of Leonard Bernstein - the most extraordinary man of extraordinary talents. Read it.' Lauren Bacall

''Humphrey Burton has written a very detailed and candid account of his friend . . . The mass of material is superbly handled . . . [Bernstein] was a music genius and he deserves this measured and meticulous biography.' Michael Kennedy, Sunday Telegraph

'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 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
