The IVY Podcast

Jan 17, 2018

West Side Story, Peter Pan, On the Waterfront, Candide — these are just a selection of the Broadway-shaping scores written by the legendary composer and conductor, Leonard Bernstein.

A trailblazing musical force, cultural ambassador, and longtime music director of the New York Philharmonic, Bernstein is credited with bringing American classical music to the world stage.

The IVY Podcast hosted Joshua Gersen, the New York Philharmonic’s current Assistant Conductor and former occupant of Bernstein’s chair, to hear an insider’s take on Bernstein’s music and what it’s like conducting the Philharmonic in the year of Bernstein’s centennial celebrations.
