A Gershwin Masterpiece

About 32 years ago, LPR attended a Saturday morning Tanglewood rehearsal of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, conducted by Leornard Bernstein. This was his final appearance as a conductor. He was ill at the time and passed away a few months later. LPR was amazed to witness how the music gave strengthened Maestro Bernstein.. He sat in a chair for most of the rehearsal, but, at various points during the last movement, the score lifted him from the chair -- music transcending physical illness. Here is the maestro leading the New York Philharmonic and performing as soloist, fourteen years earlier

Here is a link of Ms. Buniatishvili playing Gershwin -- Commissioner Goodell, please take notice.
