Re: [ARSCLIST] Bernstein info needed
There were a lot of conductors who everybody hated to work with,and not many people liked as a person,but were greatly admired,Fritz Reiner pops to mind. While Lenny was never as admired as Reiner,There are certain records of his that have been creeping up in price of late.The MAS records,the early Hi-Fi Stereo
BTW,I also have a George Szell MAS Lp of two Mozart Symphonies,also credited as "The Music Appreciation Symphony Orchestra",which I have not been able to find in any discography.

modicum of respect for Lenny, when he still had talent and we didn't know what
a shit he was).
