Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Allan Kozinn
A landmark in the development of Bernstein's public persona.... Bernstein was a champion talker about music, and these "Omnibus" appearances, which range from 33 to 76 minutes, were his first opportunities to try out his lecture style on television.... Persuading listeners that music is irresistible -- and how and why -- is what Bernstein was all about.
