`A rich selection of letters to and from Bernstein, meticulously edited by Nigel Simeone. . .Alive with spontaneous intelligence, Leonard Bernstein's letters display exactly this unforced intimacy, though there were moments when he no doubt knew that posterity was listening in.' -Morris Dickstein, TLS -- Morris Dickstein * TLS * "Time and again, The Leonard Bernstein Letters demonstrate how the composer and conductor lived in overdrive."-Carol Oja, Harvard Magazine -- Carol Oja * Harvard Magazine * "Opens a window into the world of one of the most accomplished and brilliant artists of the 20th century."-Irene Javors, The Harvard Gay and Lesbian Review -- Irene Javors * The Harvard Gay and Lesbian Review * "Simeone has manages to encapsulate a central tradition in the history of music of the last century as seen through the correspondence of one of its most important exponents."-Paul Seydor, Absolute Sound -- Paul Seydor * Absolute Sound * "The . . .mainly unpublished correspondence both from and to Bernstein, between 1932 and 1990, shines a light on this unique figure's thoughts, work and passions, his voice ringing clear with warmth and candour. . .he was a remarkable artist and human being - elusive in his complexity, yet evoked, through these letters, with undeniable presence."-Teresa Levonian Cole, Country Life -- Teresa Levonian Cole * Country Life * "[Bernstein's] manifold legacy, including these letters, lives on."-John Simon, The Weekly Standard -- John Simon * Weekly Standard * "For. . .eloquent and moving testimony read the entry for 25 November 1963 in The Leonard Bernstein Letters edited by Nigel Simeone, the contents of which give an. . .overview of a liberal American century."-Chris Ford, The Guardian -- Chris Ford * The Guardian * "This anthology of Bernstein's correspondence, assembled by Nigel Simeone, shines a light on the famous conductor and composer's private thoughts."-WQXR.org * WQXR.org * "Magnificent and long-awaited."-Maria Popova, Brain Pickings -- Maria Popova * Brain Pickings * "Like Britten, Bernstein was an assiduous correspondent, and The Leonard Bernstein Letters is a vast, absorbing canvas of a life lived at full speed, with a cast list that reads like a who's who of American cultural life in the 20th century."-Adam Lively, The Sunday Times -- Adam Lively * The Sunday Times * "In Nigel Simeone's editorial labour of love The Leonard Bernstein Letters some of the most entertaining letters come from Bernstein's correspondents."-Sameer Rahim, The Sunday Telegraph -- Sameer Rahim * The Sunday Telegraph * "Simeone's choice of letters [are] superbly amplified by his exhaustively researched footnotes, which manage to identify and flesh our even the most obscure of his subject's multifarious correspondents."-Stephen Walsh, The Spectator -- Stephen Walsh * The Spectator * "The Leonard Bernstein Letters. . .contains so much that is startling and unknown that all past books, including his own, become instantly inadequate. Don't take my word for it. On the jacket, Bernstein's official biographer, Humphrey Burton, declares that, with this book in hand, `I want to start all over again.'"-Norman Lebrecht, Standpoint Magazine -- Norman Lebrecht * Standpoint Magazine * "A marvelously entertaining new book . . . The Leonard Bernstein Letters makes it possible to take stock of Bernstein's weaknesses-his enthusiasm could lead to sentimentality, and clearly his fame became a kind of bubble. But these pale in comparison with his energy, joy, and absolute dedication to music. It's sad to think that our culture will probably never produce someone like him again." -Adam Kirsch, Tablet magazine -- Adam Kirsch * Tablet magazine * "His letters have a tremendous zest, and a good journalistic eye, too, and since he was often at the right place at the right time, at some of the key moments in his 20th-century history, this gives them a wider interest."-Christopher Hart, The Sunday Times -- Christopher Hart * The Sunday Times * "The book - consisting of 650 letters both from and to Bernstein, dated between 1932 and 1990 - is not merely interesting. It is fascinating, enlightening and a veritable page-turner that will keep you up nights, ruin your sleep and wreak all sorts of havoc for 600 pages."-Steve Suskin, Playbill -- Steve Suskin * Playbill * "A document of a golden age."-Jimmy So, The Daily Beast -- Jimmy So * The Daily Beast * "This incredible collection of letters gives us a glimpse into the depth and breadth of Bernstein's world. The sheer volume of correspondence, all beautifully presented and annotated by Nigel Simeone, shows us that Bernstein loved the written word as much as the musical word!"-Marin Alsop, musical director, The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra -- Marin Alsop "[It's] full of both serious and gossipy correspondence between the musical genius and such friends as Stephen Sondheim, Betty Comden and Aaron Copland."-Joe Meyers, CTNews.com -- Joe Meyers * CTNews.com * "What terrifying letters you write: fit for the flames is what they are. Just imagine how much you would have to pay to retrieve such a letter forty years from now when you are conductor of the Philharmonic."-Aaron Copland to Leonard Bernstein in 1940 -- Aaron Copland "A hugely entertaining chronicle of a enviable life, and a trove of musical and show-business gossip."-Adam Kirsch, The New Republic -- Adam Kirsch * The New Republic * "Bernstein emerges as highly literate, compassionate, astonishingly busy and gifted almost beyond measure."-Kirkus Reviews (starred review) * Kirkus Reviews * "Energetic, intimate . . . an eye-opening volume: a glimpse into the personal life of a legend."-Jeff Lunden, NPR "Weekend Edition Sunday" -- Jeff Lunden * NPR "Weekend Edition Sunday" * "Exhaustive, thrilling [and] indispensable."-Elysa Gardner, USA Today, starred review -- Elysa Gardner * USA Today * "The correspondence from and to the remarkable conductor is full of pleasure and insights."-New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice) * New York Times Book Review * "Bernstein's versatility and ambition were such that he spent a lot of time trying to figure out who he was-which also meant searching for American music and for the future of music generally. This book doesn't resolve Bernstein's quest. But it's an invaluable resource, and the quest itself continues to fascinate and to matter." -Joseph Horowitz, The Wall Street Journal -- Joseph Horowitz * The Wall Street Journal * "His collaborator Betty Comden once noted, in a letter to Bernstein, that he saved `every scrap of correspondence.' You will be grateful . . . a rich collection of letters to and from Bernstein, filled with revelations about his musical and personal lives."-James R. Oestreich, New York Times -- James R. Oestreich * New York Times * "With their intellectual brilliance, humour and wonderful eye for detail, Leonard Bernstein's letters blow all biographies out of the water. His galaxy of correspondents includes Stephen Sondheim, Boris Pasternak and Jacqueline Kennedy. Full of fresh information and the authentic voice of a constant seeker."-The Economist (named a 2013 Book of the Year) * The Economist *
