With his centenary already looming large, Sony Classical releases the most comprehensive recorded collection ever released of the music of American conductor, composer and educator Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990).

This special 25-CD edition includes the famous Bernstein conducts Bernstein Columbia stereo recordings from 1960 to 1974, remastered from the original analogue tapes using 24 bit / 192 kHz technology. Further it contains his great Theater Works, Songs, Chamber and Concert Music and a newly compiled double CD Bernstein in Jazz, featuring Dave Brubeck, Gary Burton, J. J. Johnson, Branford and Ellis Marsalis, Gerry Mulligan, André Previn and others.
