Leonard Bernstein, New York City, 1959


Leonard Bernstein, who'd signed his first long term contract with Columbia Records in 1956, became the musical director of the New York Philharmonic in November 1957. By December 1959, when this photo of Bernstein conducting in the studio was taken, the maestro had seen his musical, West Side Story, premiere at the Wintergarden, launched his influential series of televised NYP concerts for young people on CBS, broken through the Iron Curtain with a three-week NYP tour of Russia, and published his groundbreaking first book, The Joy of Music.
