Leonard Bernstein was without a doubt an American musical genius – a conductor, composer, pianist and brilliant educator who exploited the emerging form of television to bring classical music to huge audiences. For his operetta Candide, Bernstein turned for inspiration to the 18th century French novel by Voltaire. 'The exuberant Overture, which seems to be written in the key of life, could be the reason for this work's enduring success,' says Katherine.
