Remember Leonard Bernstein

 Renowned composer Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990) is known for being a conductor, author, music lecturer & concert pianist.
Director of the famous New York Philharmonic, Bernstein met with a lot of success throughout his career, especially for his Broadway rendition of “West Side Story” and numerous operas, symphonies etc.
However, he also contributed to the world of cinema with the following film scores: “West Side Story” (1961, directed by Robert Wise) & “On The Waterfront” (1954, Elia Kazan).  I personally tremendously appreciate the latter.
