Leonard Bernstein (1918 –1990)

He was one of the first American composers born and trained in the United States. Perhaps his best-known music is the musical, West Side Story. He was also well known as a pianist and a lecturer, He was one of the first conductors to perform the work of Charles Ives, who had composed some 50 years earlier.

A Jew, he is perhaps best known in liturgical music for his Mass.
