Bernstein Letters

Series producer Steve Rowland had unprecented access to thousands of letters exchanged with Leonard Bernstein throughout his career. Many of the letters are included in the eleven episodes of Leonard Bernstein: An American Life. In the series, letters are read by two celebrated actors of stage and screen – Alec Baldwin and Maria Tucci. Daughter Jamie Bernstein voices Bernstein’s own letters; Schuyler Chapin, Bernstein’s record producer and longtime friend, voices the letters of European composers.
