2018 marks the centenary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein. Bernstein was an American composer, conductor, author, music lecturer, and pianist. Karsh said of their time together:
His exquisite impromptu piano reveries – poetic islands of peace – punctuated the tension of a highly charged photographic session.
Karsh images will be seen in an upcoming book on Bernstein and in many of the other events going on around this centenary – around 2000 all together!
