  2018年,誕生於1918年的音樂大師伯恩斯坦(Leonard Bernstein) ,即將誕生100年。為此,Sony唱片公司特別將旗下所擁有的伯恩斯坦創作樂曲之錄音,集合成這一套25CD的專集以為緬懷與紀念。
  伯恩斯坦是集指揮家、作曲家、演奏家、教育家、理論家於一身的藝術大師,其藝術造詣舉世推崇,並堪稱是本世紀最偉大的指揮家、作曲家及鋼琴家。1918年8月25日出生於麻薩諸塞州的勞倫斯,而於1990年10月14日去世。其主要音樂教育完成於哈佛大學,1939年畢業後,又在寇蒂斯音樂院隨萊納學習作曲,1940年在壇格塢伯克夏音樂中心向庫塞維茨基(Sergey Koussevitzky)學習指揮。
   專輯收錄25張CD的曲目,並以黑膠唱片封套的尺寸作為包裝設計。收錄他所創作的交響曲、協奏曲、室內樂、劇場作品、芭蕾與歌曲。其中部分作品還是由伯恩斯坦親自指揮與演奏。錄音母帶經24 bit / 192 kHz重新處理,完美重現當年的錄音效果。
  早在伯恩斯坦成為專業指揮前,就已經以作曲家身分聞名樂壇,擔任指揮後亦有不少傑作。重要作品有音樂歌舞劇「西城故事」(West Side Story)、「錦城春色」(On The Town, 1944),歌劇「憨第德」(Candide, 1956),第1號交響曲「耶利米亞」(Jeremiah, 1942)、第2號「不安的年代」(The Age of Anxiety, 1949)、第3號「卡迪希」(Kaddish, 1963),以及小提琴獨奏、弦樂與打擊樂的「小夜曲」(Serenade, 1954),芭蕾舞劇「自由想像」(Fancy Free, 1944)等。
   伯恩斯坦的部分作品兼具有爵士樂的明朗個性與古典樂的深思性格。雖然是兩種相衝突的元素,伯恩斯坦的作曲卻能將他們融合妥貼,彰顯了他高明的作曲功力。若將他的作品改編以爵士樂演奏也就順理成章。因而專輯中也收錄了兩張由多位爵士樂手演奏的錄音,包含了Dave Brubeck, Gary Burton, Aaron Bell, Eldar Djanirov, J.J. Johnson, Brandford Marsalis, Gerry Mulligan, André Previn, Martial Solal, Richard Stoltzman等人的演奏。
  儘管伯恩斯坦在指揮上的成績有目共睹,然而這套專輯更表彰了他在作曲上的成就,不僅是伯恩斯坦的樂迷不可或缺的錄音,更是現代音樂愛好者必備的典藏。
