A musician of unparalleled versatility, Leonard Bernstein achieved worldwide renown in a career spanning nearly five decades - as an inspiring conductor and teacher, as a wide-ranging composer and author, as a gifted pianist. Deutsche Grammophon presents Bernstein's heralded 1978 interpretation of Ludwig van Beethoven's intentionally named "Pastoral" Symphony No. 6 in F. Op. 68 with the mighty Wiener Philharmoniker on 180g vinyl pressed at Optimal and mastered from original sources. "Whether the mood is jovial, tragic or tender, Bernstein makes the music seem immense" (Times/Eye).
