On 25 August 2018, the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth – BBC Radio 3 will broadcast a special edition of ‘Inside Music’ with Kent Nagano. As a former student of the American composer, Kent Nagano remembers an emphasis on a broad education that included visiting art galleries and reading great works of literature, alongside studying musical scores with the Maestro. Bernstein remains the focus of the interview, but Kent also talks about other works, such as J.S. Bachs Goldberg Variations or Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus by Olivier Messiaen.
