Pappano Conducts Bernstein CD

Sir Antonio Pappano's celebration of Leonard Berstein's centenary with the performances issued in this set has an especially personal significance for him. Not only does it link the two conductor's close associations with the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, it connects him to his own direct experiences of Bernstein, as a musician and as a man.
