Summary
  • Here is the story of a friendship, a remarkable friendship between a great maestro and an administrative colleague who became his trusted confidante. This is not a biography of Leonard Bernstein but an informal portrait - a warm, personal glimpse of "Lenny" at the peak of his achievements and into his later years, when, even in declining health, he enthusiastically pursued dozens of projects. For over thirty years, as colleague and adviser, Schuyler Chapin was part of
  • the whirlwind of Bernstein activity that resulted in unforgettable recordings, television performances, operas, festivals, and theater events that will never be equaled. All of this brought frustrations, exhaustion, and moments of laughter and tears - as well as triumphs - as Mr. Chapin reveals. The friendship of Bernstein and Chapin lasted through many journeys and adventures. The two men traveled the world together making Bernstein's artistic dreams become realities,
  • and their adventures make fascinating reading. This is a behind-the-scenes look at a great man who was a good friend and always fun to be around. Rich in vignettes and anecdotes to be treasured, this book shows the human side of Bernstein. With great charm, Chapin tells what an interesting friend and colleague he indeed was
