Bernstein was a conductor, pianist, author, teacher, librettist, television star, and composer of the beloved "West Side Story", "Candide", "On the Town", and "Wonderful Town". He 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.
