Drawings by Isadore Seltzer, author and illustrator of children's books.The Young People's Concerts at the New York Philharmonic are the longest-running series of family concerts in the world, having begun in 1924 under the direction of "Uncle" Ernest Schelling. Earlier Family Matinees had begun as far back as 1885 under conductor Theodore Thomas. Josef Stransky developed them further under the name Young People's Concerts beginning in 1914. They have run uninterrupted under this name since 1926. Ernest Schelling led his first Young People's Concert on March 27, 1924. By combining musical performances of the Philharmonic with lectures, Schelling set the stage for the program. During that time period, the show went on the road multiple times, travelling to Philadelphia, London, Rotterdam, and Los Angeles.Leonard Bernstein brought the Young People's Concerts to a new level of attention when he arrived as conductor of the New York Philharmonic in 1958. Crucially, the first performance with him as music director, on January 18, 1958 at Carnegie Hall, New York, was the first of these concerts to be televised. Beginning in 1962, the Young People's Concerts became the first series of concerts ever televised from Lincoln Center. Bernstein conducted a total of 53 such performances, all of which were telecast on CBS and syndicated in over 40 countries. Although Bernstein left as music director in 1969, he continued to lead the Young People's Concerts as Conductor Emeritus until 1971Condition - overall very good for ageSlipcase condition: still intact, but wear along all edges with bumped/abraded corners, peeling, crease marks, age related darkening and general shelf wear with soiling.Hardcover condition, Simon and Schuster 1962, stated first printing, 181 pages.
