LEONARD BERNSTEIN (1918-1990) rose to fame as the conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra (1958-1969). The varied works of the versatile composer, conductor and pianist include the musicals On the Town (1944) and West Side Story (1957). His symphonies include The Age of Anxiety (1949) and Mass (commissioned by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis for the opening of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. in 1971). Bernstein also received an Academy Award for his score for On the Waterfront (1954). ANDRÉ PREVIN (1929-2019) has made over 400 recordings as a conductor and pianist in virtually every field of composition, from symphony and concerto to chamber music and song. He has also served as the principal conductor for a number of prestigious orchestras, including the Houston Symphony (1967-1970), the London Symphony (1968-1970), the Pittsburgh Symphony (1976-1984) and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (beginning in 1987) and the music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic (1985-1989) and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (1985-1986). As a film composer and arranger, he has won four Academy Awards (for Gigi, Porgy and Bess, Irma La Douce and My Fair Lady).
