WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Hershey Felder, critically acclaimed master entertainer and virtuoso pianist brings one of America's greatest musical legends to life in Maestro Bernstein. Conductor, composer, pianist, author, teacher, librettist, television star, and composer of West Side Story, Candide, On the Town, and Wonderful Town, Bernstein pushed all boundaries to become the world's first serious musical media superstar. Felder combines first-person narrative with the compositions of Bernstein and others to draw us deeply into a fascinating life—a life filled with tragedy and triumph...and music.
The Boston Globe wrote "in his finely wrought portrait, Felder captures Bernstein's restless energy, his combination of self-confidence and vulnerability, and his flair for drama."
