One of the greatest American composers.  He not only wrote classical music, but Broadway and Movie Music.  West Side Story changed the Broadway stage forever and the movie became a great American classic.

Of course, he was a great conductor, performer and one of the most famous personalities of the 20th Century.  Time Magazine published a story today about how he conducted performances by an orchestra comprised of holocaust survivors.  There are a million Bernstein stories. Here’s one by Tom Wolfe about Bernstein’s 48th birthday.
