Today in Music History
IN 1943, conductor Leonard Bernstein became an overnight star at the age of 25. Bernstein was an assistant to New York Philharmonic conductor Bruno Walter, who was ill for an afternoon concert at Carnegie Hall. Bernstein was summoned to fill in, and his extraordinary performance landed him on the front page of the next day's New York Times.
