- The Political Life of an American Musician
- By: Barry Seldes
- Narrated by: Dick Hill
- Length: 8 hrs and 57 mins
From his dazzling conducting debut in 1943 until his death in 1990, Leonard Bernstein's star blazed brilliantly. In this fresh and revealing biography of Bernstein's political life, Barry Seldes examines Bernstein's career against the backdrop of cold war America - blacklisting by the State Department in 1950, voluntary exile from the New York Philharmonic in 1951 for fear that he might be blacklisted, and the factors that by the mid-1950s allowed his triumphant return to the New York Philharmonic.
