At the New York Philharmonic, the flags were flown at half-mast. Broadway dimmed its lights. Carnegie Hall announced a week of honorary concerts. And when the funeral procession passed a construction site, the workers removed their hard hats and called out, “Goodbye, Lenny!” The year was 1990 and the world had just lost an artistic giant. Leonard Bernstein was dead at the age of 72. Thirteen/WNET’s award-winning biography series AMERICAN MASTERS presents the critically acclaimed 1998 biography, Leonard Bernstein: Reaching for the Note.
