This second volume of Deutsche Grammophon's complete Leonard Bernstein collection documents the legendary musician's conducting career and is subtitled 'Mahler to Wagner'. The box lid lifts off to reveal the deluxe LP-size book, with new texts and striking photos from Bernstein’s DG career. Beneath the book lie four compartments (colour coded) which hold the CDs. The CD covers immediately evoke the Deutsche Grammophon / Bernstein era, whether through iconic portraits of the artist or striking artwork.

Bernstein's early Decca recordings from 1953 - Beethoven’s 'Eroica', Tchaikovsky’s 'Pathetique' and Dvořák’s 'From the New World' - are also included.
