Will Leonard Bernstein West Side Story ever go too old to amaze? I think not!
I don’t know how many of you remember the Young Peoples Concerts, introduced by Leonard Bernstein. Few of those moments among other cultural experiences was made available to us, in Romania: I remember taking control over the living room, each Saturday morning at 9:00 A.M. and requiring that all the my family members respect the program. I learned a lot about music by listening to this great composer and conductor.
