Composer, conductor, showman: Leonard Bernstein was the ultimate musical all-rounder. To celebrate his 100th birthday, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Joana Carneiro play the music he loved – Gershwin’s swinging Rhapsody in Blue – and the music he wrote: a rare performance of his Bible-inspired first symphony.
